RSS worker murdered by suspected CPI(M) supporter in Kerala
A 26-year-old Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh RSS worker was on Saturday attacked by a country-made bomb and hacked to death allegedly by the supporters of CPI(M) near panchayat’s office in Thillankeri village, Kerala.
According to reports, the attackers allegedly hurled bombs at the RSS worker, identified as Bineesh, causing injuries to his head and leg, before attacking him with sharp-edged weapons.
Bineesh was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
He was murdered just an hour after a Communist Party of India (Marxist) supporter sustained injuries when the car he was travelling in was attacked by a country-made bomb in Kannur. The CPI(M) worker, Jijesh, is undergoing treatment at a hospital in Kannur.
The BJP had called for a strike on Sunday in Kannur in protest against Bineesh’s murder.
The RSS and CPI(M) have time and again blamed each other for attacks on their workers. At least four RSS activists were attacked on August 25 allegedly by the workers of CPI(M) in Kannur’s Muzukkunnu area.
