A plus student, who left RSS recently, was chased and beaten to death by a group of people. Police arrested six people and all are workers of RSS.
The incident happened in Alapuzha district in Kerala on Wednesday night. Left Democratic Front (LDF) and opposition UDF have called for a dawn to dusk hartal in the district on Friday in protest against the brutal murder.
18 year old Anathu was taken to hospital after he was severely attacked by the group but succumbed to injuries.
The local CPI(M) and CPI leaders alleged RSS of targeting the student for leaving the party and claimed that action should be taken against RSS leaders in the area.
Son of Ashokan and Vimala, Nandu alias Ananthu, was a plus student in Vayalar Ramavarma school. Reports said he was an RSS activist and used to attend their programmes including daily shakhas. However, his ties with RSS leaders in the area worsened after he decided to quit the party and reportedly thought of joining a left party.
Anantu was beaten to death during the festival in Vayalar Neelimangalam temple after the group sent a friend of him to take him to the place where RSS workers assemble for meeting.
The group reportedly started beating Ananthu when he was brought to the place and they kicked him several times when he tried to run away.
