RSS worker’s murder: BJP observes hartal in Guruvayur, Manaloor

Shops and business establishments have downed shutters and vehicles are mostly off the roads in Guruvayur and Manaloor towns in Thrissur district following a hartal called by BJP to protest the killing of an RSS worker.

The 23-year-old RSS worker, Anandan, was hacked to death allegedly by CPI(M) workers on Sunday in broad daylight.

While the BJP has blamed CPI(M) for the murder, the Marxist party in a statement denied its role in the incident.

This is the third murder of BJP/RSS workers in the district since the Pinarayi Vijayan government came to power in May last year, a BJP leader had alleged.

Anandan was an accused in a case relating to the murder of a CPI(M) worker in 2013.
