Thrissur: Political murder has returned to the state after a lull with the killing of an RSS worker near Nemini Balaraman temple near Guruvayur on Sunday noon. He was identified as  Vadaketherikathu Anandan, 26, second accused in the murder of DYFI leader and student, Kunnamkorathu Fazil of Brahmakulam, in 2013.

Three  assailants came in a white Swift car registered in the name of Shahis, brother of  Fazil,  knocked down the bullet bike driven by Anandan,  attacked him with machetes  and fled the place.

 

Anandan, who  was hacked on his neck,  was rushed to Rajah Hospital, but his life  could not be saved. Vishun Chand Mohan, a friend of the deceased, suffered leg injuries in the attack.

Anandan, a truck driver,  had come out on bail  four months after he was arrested in the Fazil murder case. He is survived by his mother and a brother. His  body was kept at Thrissur Medical College.

Guruvayur police are on the lookout for Fazil's brother Shahis and two of his friends who are the main suspects in the case. Fazil was murdered on November 4, 2013 by RSS men for  damaging the flex boards erected for Astamironihi celebrations in Brahamakulam.

 

The BJP has called a hartal in Guruvayur and Manalur Assembly segments on Monday. A large posse of policemen was posted at Guruvyaur, Nemini and nearby areas.

BJP president Amit Shah condemned the killing of Anand. In a tweet on Sunday he said that Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan “must explain what his govt is doing to curb criminal elements in his rank”.

Shocker for police
The murder  came as a shocker for the police as the state-level meet of Seva Bharathi of RSS was going on in Guruvayur.

Anandan's  friends say that he had told them about a white Swift car following him for the past few days in the locality.

 

Guruvyaur police said that they had not received any complaints from the victim regarding stalking.

BJP state president Kummanam Rajashekharan blamed the CPM for the murder and said the  incident was  proof that  the CPM  could not give up revenge politics.
