Kerala: RSS worker stabbed to death, BJP alleges CPI(M) behind attack

The incident occurred near Brahmakulam around 1.30 pm, police said.

The incident occurred at around 1.30 pm when Anand, who was on a two-wheeler, was knocked down by a auto. RSS worker Annand was an accused in the murder of CPI (M) worker four years ago and was under bail.

The arrested are identified as Faiz, Karthik and Jitesh, a top police official said. The murder is suspected to be a revenge killing. "It never believed in democracy and annihilation of political rivals is the trademark of the party", said the BJP's state president while condemning the murder.

The RSS-BJP called a shutdown on Monday in temple town Guruvayur in protest. BJP has claimed that around 120 of its workers across Kerala have been killed since 2001 by Left cadres.

The CPI (M) and the RSS-BJP are engaged in a violent turf war in the state.

In one of the recent incidents, in August, an RSS worker was hacked to death by a group of assailants. "The CPI (M) has become a murder gang in the district". "That the CPI (M) is unable to end political violence and murders despite intense protests justifies the BJP's argument that the Marxist party is a terror outfit", he said. "This incident proves that the CPI (M) is not prepared to lay down arms even after all the peace efforts".

"We know that a brother of Fasil (Marxist youth murdered in 2014) had been regularly following Anand in vehicle". We are yet to find how many people were behind the attack. His body has now been shifted to Thrissur Medical College for postmortem. Despite our campaign in the state, the killer brigade is active. BJP national president Amit Shah was also among leaders who took part in the march.
