A report has emerged that 16 people have been arrested in connection with the murder of Palakkadu-based RSS leader, S K Srinivasan. Four leaders of the Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) have been suspected and detained. Srinivasan’s death is being called a “political murder.”
According to his neighbors, Sreenivasan was a very nice person. He was always available for help, regardless of the person’s political background.
Police in Kerala have arrested four leaders of the SDPI for allegedly killing RSS leader S K Srinivasan in Palakkadu on April 16. The attack was carried out by trained members of the SDPI who had gathered to avenge the murder of an RSS worker. The two men were chasing the bike and then hacked him to death.
The arrests of the SDPI leaders have come amid a crackdown on militant Islamist groups in India. Police have identified the arrested individuals as Muhammad Bilal, Muhammad Riswan, and A Riasudin.
16 people were arrested in connection with the murder of RSS leader S K Srinivasan.
The police have been questioning people in connection with the murder of a Kerala RSS leader. So far, the investigation shows that the alleged killers were a six-member gang. The rest of them have an indirect connection with this case.
Officials are investigating the conspiracy involved in Srinivasan’s killing. These arrests are important because they show how big the conspiracy was involved with it.
According to the police, the gang that attacked Sreenivasan was a motorcycle-borne gang of six. The terror group killed the RSS leader after tying him up with a sarong. A large crowd of people gathered outside his shop to witness the incident.
Eyewitnesses said the gang hacked Srinivasan to death with sharp objects, including machetes.
After the police detained the three alleged killers in connection with another murder case, they arrested another three RSS workers. They were accused of killing a Popular Front of India leader, Subair. Srinivasan’s close friend Ramesh was also arrested in connection with the murder. The investigation into the killing of the RSS leader has been going on for months, and the police suspect that all of the accused are linked to this incident.
Subair’s death was described as a “political murder.”
The incident took place on April 15, and the attack was allegedly a revenge killing for the murder of PFI leader Sabir. The killing of Sabir has led to the arrest of three RSS workers. However, the motives for the attack remain unclear.
The alleged killers allegedly had a political motive and were armed. During the trial, the suspects were identified. According to the police, Srinivasan had been a prominent leader in the RSS and a former district leader. The alleged killers hacked him to death as he was returning home with his father. The incident is the second such case in Kerala in a few months.
The death of the RSS leader is not the first time political killings have taken place in Kerala. Political violence has been rife since the CPI (M) and RSS are rivals. The violence was most pronounced in the Kannur district. After the Pinarayi government took office in 2016, it cracked down on political violence in Kerala and held all-party meetings to put an end to the killings. However, the RSS-SDPI rivalry has grown in the Palakkad district over the last two years.
