BJP worker hacked to death in Kannur; eight CPI-M activists taken into custody

Kannur: A 27-year-old BJP worker was hacked to death at his house at Pappinissery here late night on Monday.

The deceased has been identified as P.V. Sujith.

Eight CPI(M) activists have been taken into custody in connection with the incident.

The incident happened at around 11 p.m.

His parents who had tried to prevent the assailants from attacking their son were injured in the attack.

Reacting to the incident, CPI(M) state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan denied his party’s role in the incident.

“The CPI(M) doesn’t have any link with the Papinnissery incident. It was not a political murder,” he said.

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.
