  • Political killing in Kerala: RSS worker hacked to death in alleged 'revenge' attack

The Left also blames the BJP and the RSS of a series of political murders and violent attacks on its supporters. A strike is being observed by the saffron party in Guruvayoor and Manaloor in Thrissur district.

Infuriated with the recent killings, the state's BJP and RSS workers have called for a complete shutdown on Monday in Guruvayur. Speaking about the incident, State BJP president Kummanam Rajasekharan said, "The latest killing again exposed the criminal face of the CPI (M)". The political killings involving the CPM and the BJP-RSS workers have dominated political discourse in the state since the CPM-led Left Democratic Front government assumed office in May past year.

The CPM has, in turn, accused the BJP and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) of resorting to violence and denied the involvement of its government and leadership in the killings. "The Government should urgent steps to arrest the culprits and ensure that such incidents do not recur". The BJP has alleged that as many as 120 of its workers, 84 in Kannur alone, have been killed in Kerala since 2001.
