CPM worker arrested for murdering Youth Congress leader also a prime accused in RSS worker’s killing

A Youth Congress leader named M Shuhaib, was hacked to death in Kerala’s Kannur district on 13th February. The leader as a result of the attack suffered critical stab wounds and succumbed to his injuries.

The Kannur district, the hometown of current Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan, which has already become infamous for the murder of BJP workers and its youths joining ISIS, some might say seemed to have found a fresh prey in the form of Congress leaders.

The law and order establishment in this matter acted swiftly and apprehended two CPM workers named Rijin Raj and Akash Thillankery in connection with the murder. It was rumoured that the accused were hiding in an establishment belonging to the CPM and decided to surrender once the raids intensified. The raids included 300 policemen led by Kannur district police chief G Siva Vikram, searching CPM strongholds in Kannur.

Since the arrests, further details have started to tumble regarding those arrested which includes one of them being a prime accused in the murder of an RSS worker.

As reported, the accused Akash Thillankery was a member of the CPM’s cyber wing and used to actively promote the party on social media. What might further raise speculations about Akash’s closeness to the top CPM brass is that pictures have emerged of him along with current Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan:

Besides this supposed closeness with CPM leaders, Akash Thillankery is also alleged to be the prime accused in the murder of RSS worker P Vineesh, who was killed in 2016. As per local reports, besides Akash, Rijin Raj (the other person arrested) and their friend Sreejith are also an accused in RSS worker’s killing. Sreejith was arrested by the police on Saturday. 

Besides being an accused in the murders of RSS workers, Akash as per reports was also captured on video chanting provocative slogans against the RSS workers like, “The knife that hacked Vineesh to death has not been thrown into the Arabian Sea. It has not gathered rust. Now, who wants to hit us”, while participating in a local CPM rally.
