On 12th May, a RSS worker named Choorakkad Biju was hacked to death by alleged CPM workers in Payyannur Kerala. He was killed on the Palakkot bridge at 4 AM in the morning.

This had prompted widespread protests from the BJP, which had declared its intention to observe a strike on 13th May.

Incidentally after the murder, the CPM establishment had claimed that it’s workers were not involved in the murder and also claimed that they were exercising self-restraint.

This stand of the CPM has since been busted after the police registered a case against 7 CPM workers in relation with the murder.

Now the police has reportedly managed a breakthrough after two CPM activists have been arrested. According to the report the police were still ascertaining the number of accused in the case and also were looking for the rest of them against whom case has already been registered.

The Kannur district in Kerala has become extremely politically sensitive in recent times with deadly clashes between the RSS and CPM working having become almost a regular event. Reports have suggested that Choorakkad Biju was the 8th RSS worker killed in Kannur since May 2016.

The RSS organization has long cried out to the center for its support but such pleas have till date fallen on deaf ears.

The last couple of years have seen numerous instances of violence perpetrated against RSS sympathizers with both workers and their offices getting targeted.

In January a BJP worker was stabbed to death at Andaloor in Dharmadam which is the constituency of the current CM of Kerala.

In February of last year a 27 year old RSS worker was hacked to death in front of his parents in Kannur.

We had reported how an RSS office in Kannur was vandalised by alleged CPM workers, a day after it was inaugurated. It was also alleged that the office had been attacked a whopping 18 times during its construction.

In October 2016, the RSS establishment had claimed that as many as 350 of its workers have been a victim of political murders in the last 7 decades.

It remains to be seen as to whether the killed workers finally start getting justice but with both the state and central governments acting as mere spectators, the situation might not improve in the near future.
