Kerala’s cycle of political violence continues. Days after a CPM worker was hacked to death in politically sensitive Kannur, a BJP worker has now been reported dead in an attack, making it the seventh political murder in the district this year. Cadres of the CPM and the Sangh Parivar have routinely clashed against each other in the northern district.
According to a report in Manorama Online, Ramit, belonging to the BJP, was attacked in Pinarayi town in the district early Wednesday. The report said he had grievous injuries and was admitted to a hospital in Thalassery, but succumbed to his wounds. It’s being reported that Ramit’s father Uthaman was hacked to death by alleged CPM workers in 2002.
On Monday, Mohanan, who was a local committee member of the CPM, was attacked by a gang of armed men at a toddy shop where he worked as a sales man. His hands and legs almost severed, Mohanan died later in hospital. Almost immediately, the CPM blamed the RSS for the attack and called for a hartal in the district. Curfew orders were clamped in the area as well to prevent further clashes.
