Speaking over the incident, BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said, “This is very unfortunate. Leaders of Communist Party should know that the age of violent politics is over. Due to their violent politics, this party has been removed from the country and from the world. The Kerala government should act strict against this incident and whoever responsible must face action.”

It is worth mentioning that Manoj (42), a district office-bearer of RSS, was hacked to death by a gang that attacked him at Kathirur in Kannur district in north Kerala on Monday. Two others were injured, one of them seriously, in the attack.

Country-made bombs were hurled at the car in which Manoj and his companions were travelling and the attackers then hacked him to death.

RSS-BJP leaders alleged that the CPI(M) was behind the killing and their state functionaries gathered in Kannur to pay homage to their slain colleague.

The killing happened on a day when BJP president Amit Shah was in Thiruvanathpuram.
