RSS Activist Attacked, Beaten Up With Rods In Kerala’s Kannur

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM:  An activist of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, the ideological mentor of the BJP, was dragged out of his vehicle and beaten up with iron rods near Kerala’s Kannur today. The man, who drives an auto-rickshaw for a living, has been admitted in a local hospital. Police say they suspect it is a political attack and there are no eyewitnesses.

"We have sent a police team to the hospital where the RSS activist is admitted to see if he has been able to identify any of the attackers. Prima facie, we are probing this as a case of political attack," district police chief G Siva Vikram told NDTV.

The activist was targeted at a bylane in Thalessary, 22 km from Kannur town. He sustained injuries on his head and leg. According to doctors, his condition is stable, the police said.

The attack came as the police recovered a weapons cache from a compound outside the BJP office in Kannur. Around three swords and seven iron rods were seized early today.

The BJP is holding a 15-day foot-march across the state against what the party has called the ruling CPM’s "murder politics". The yatra got off to a fiery start last Tuesday, with party chief Amit Shah, in his address to the crowds, holding state chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan "directly responsible for all political murders in Kerala".

The BJP says since 2001, nearly 120 of its workers have been killed across the state by Left cadres; 14 of the attacks, the party claims, took place in Kannur since the LDF government came to power in May 2016.

On Sunday, a CPM procession was attacked in Kannur’s Panoor area, allegedly by BJP activists. Five CPM activists and four police personnel were injured in the attack, the police said.
