The six people were arrested for assaulting Josna Sibi, 28, at a village in the district on 28 January, they said.

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.

A profusely bleeding Sibi was rushed to the Kozhikode Medical College Hospital where she had to undergo an abortion, they added.

A complaint was lodged by her in this connection on 2 February.

While one person was arrested on 8 February, the others were apprehended today following an investigation. The accused were arrested on charges of unlawful assembly, rioting, voluntarily causing hurt, criminal trespass and wrongful restraint.
