CPI-M activists held for RSS youth’s murder in Kerala

Kannur (Kerala), Feb 16 (IANS) Eight people who are activists of the CPI-M were on Tuesday taken into custody for the gruesome murder of an RSS activist near here on Monday, police said.

“The arrested are activists of the CPI-M, but till now we have not been able to attribute any political motive to the murder. However, all aspects are being looked into,” said a police officer here.

A group of armed people barged into the house of the 26-year-old Sujith, an activist of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). on Monday night. Police said the eight have been held for Sujith’s murder.

However, an official of the Valapattanam Police station that made the arrests told IANS that police have not been able to identify any political provocation for the attack in which Sujith was killed.

The group attacked Sujith with weapons and also attacked his parents and brother. Sujith died while being taken to the hospital.

Senior CPI-M leader at Kannur M.V.Jayarajan told reporters that there is nothing political in the incident.

“We believe this is a retaliation of an eve-teasing episode in which some people attacked the victim,” said Jayarajan, adding that police are also not terming it as political incident at present.

But the district leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party in Kannur allege this is the handiwork of the Communist Party of India-Marxist.

State BJP president Kummanam Rajasekheran in his twitter post said that the party has lost another bright youngster to the Left terror.

“The CPI-M should know that they gain nothing out of killing someone. Hours after top CPM leaders, including Sitram Yechuri, assemble in Thiruvananthapuram, Sujith gets killed in Kannur. What message does this give to the society,” asked Rajasekheran.
