"These party goons are pressurizing me to withdraw the complaint after the incident and they have all the support of the party".

Two weeks ago, the woman intervened in a tussle between Shibu, Thamby and another neighbor, who were assaulting her husband.

"I had filed a complaint at the police station regarding the matter", she said. "We took her to a nearby hospital, where she had to undergo a forced abortion", a local was quoted as saying.

The incident had taken place in Thamarassery of Kozhikode district of Kerala.

This includes Thamby, who is the CPI (M) branch secretary, Velankodu, and five others - Sarasama, Saidhalavi, Joy, Ranjith and Benoy.

A scuffle had broken out between her husband and neighbours over a boundary dispute during which Thambi, a CPM branch secretary of Velamcode, kicked Sibi on her stomach, police said.

On the night of January 28, Sibi Chacko was attacked at his home in Kodenchery by Syedalavi and his accomplices, in connection with a land dispute. The group attacked the woman's husband and their son.

The family of the woman, who had to undergo a forced abortion, held a sit-in protest outside the police station here Wednesday, demanding the arrest of all the accused in the case.

Seven people have been arrested in connection with the case, whereas the main accused is still absconding. Those men threatened me in public that they will kill me. "But I am firm on my decision, I will go forward till I get justice", the pregnant woman's husband said.
