KANNUR: The Mangrove Theme Park developed on the Valapattanam riverbank by a Communist Party of India (Marxist)-backed society was inaugurated by film actor Suresh Gopi on Sunday.
Earlier in the day, a group of environmentalists preparing to stage a protest against the development of the park was attacked. Four green activists were injured. They were admitted to a hospital here.
The Muslim Youth League also staged a dharna in the evening on the southern side of the Valapattanam bridge to voice its protest against the alleged encroachment in the name of the eco-tourism project.
