ATTINGAL: A complaint has been voiced against the police for attacking some students of a government boys’ high school in Varkala. The police beat them after a team of students burst crackers during the youth festival held in the school. But the police has denied it. Their explanation was that they resorted to lathicharge when the students tried to attack them.

The principal of the school had lodged a complaint against the boys for bursting the crackers. After getting it, a police team led by Varkala sub inspector Binu reached the school.
