National Commission for Women will seek a report on political violence at Pinarayi in Kannur district from Kerala government, its Chairperson Lalitha Kumaramangalam on Monday said.

Talking to reporters after visiting houses of the victims, Kumaramangalam said it was condemnable that violence occurred in the hometown of Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan.

She visited the houses of both BJP and CPI(M) activists in the area and also met women and received complaints from them.
