The state-owned buses plying to neighbouring Kerala from the district did not operate today, given the hartal called by BJP protesting against the murder of their worker in Kannur.


About 30 buses from the city to destinations like Palakkad, Ernakulam, Guruvayoor and Thrissur were off the roads, official sources said.


Similarly ten buses from Pollachi in the district and eight from nearby Nilgiris district also remained indoor, they said. BJP activist Remith was hacked to death in Pinarayi in Kannur district yesterday.
