The Union Minister of State for External Affairs, E Ahamed on Monday declined to comment on the attack on members of Mother Teresa's Missionaries of Charity in Kozhikode last Saturday.

"Without knowing all the facts of the case, I cannot comment on the incident," he said.

The minister was talking to reporters after inaugurating a 'India in Space' exhibition and 'Into Space' show launched jointly by the Regional Science Centre and Planetarium and the Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre, Thiruvananthapuram.

Asked about the presence of a Kenyan national among the charity members during their visit to a Dalit colony for a rice distribution programme when the incident took place, he said, "As of now, it is the state government's subject".
