Kochi: The killing of a Communist Party of India (CPI) worker near New Mahe in Thalassery in Kerala is coming to light. The deceased fisherman, Haridas, was returning home from work around 1 pm on Monday when he was attacked. Haridas was attacked by a group who arrived on two bikes. Haridas's body has been kept for post-mortem at Pariyaram Medical College. His brother, who tried to stop the attack, was injured in the incident and has been admitted to the cooperative hospital.
The CPI has alleged that the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) is behind the attack. It is being told that the attack and the murder took place due to the rift between the CPI and the Sangh workers over a local temple festival. The case is currently under investigation. Communist Party leader MV Jayarajan said inflammatory speeches were made before the murder incident. Just like a Communist Party worker, three days ago, a young Sangh worker was stabbed to death in the Haripad area of the Alappuzha district of Kerala.
The Sangh worker had gone to dance in a temple, where he had a quarrel with some people over something. Police have detained three people in this connection. According to the police, the youth, named Sarat Chandran, had gone to Putenkariyal temple with his friends. He was returning home late at night after a dispute with some people there. During this time, some people on the way attacked him with knives.
