Two workers belonging to the CPI(M) and BJP were killed in Kerala’s Kannur district on Monday.
Police said CPI(M) worker C.V Danaraj, 38, was hacked to death by an unidentified gang in the courtyard of his house near Payyannur town around 10 pm. He was about to enter the house, when a motorcyle-borne gang pounced over him. Though he was rushed to Pariyaram Medical College Hospital by locals, he succumbed to his injuries on the way, they said.
Two hours later, BJP worker C.K Ramachandran, 46, was murdered at his home near Payyannur. The assailants hurled a crude bomb, before hacking him. He was declared dead upon arrival at the hospital.
