A CPI (M) activist on Thursday surrendered before a magistrate court in Kannur in connection with the murder of an RSS leader. This came after the police issued a lookout notice against the CPI(M) leader.
Police identified the surrendered CPI (M) activist as Vikraman, who was suspected among a gang that hacked to death RSS district leader E Manoj at Kathiroor near Thalassery in Kannur last Monday.
Manoj had been one of the accused in a murder attempt on CPI(M) leader P Jayarajan 15 years back.
The CPI(M) claimed that the party had no role in the murder of the RSS leader. On Wednesday, police had interrogated a local CPI(M) leader in Kannur in connection with the murder.
