RSS activist’s death: tension at Thalassery

Special Correspondent

THALASSERY: Tension prevailed in Thalassery following the death of a Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) activist in a bomb explosion at Komathupara, near here, late night on Friday.

C.K. Anoop, 21 died on the way to hospital. Another RSS activist, Rijesh, 29, who had also suffered injuries in the explosion, has been admitted to the Government Medical College Hospital in Kozhikode.

A CPI(M) worker identified as Jithesh, 28, was injured in a clash between rival workers. While the RSS and the Bharatiya Janata Party alleged that Anoop was killed in bomb attacks by Communist Party of India (Marxist) activists, the CPI(M) here stated that the RSS activists were injured when country-made bombs they were carrying went off.

Tension prevailed at Thalassery and nearby areas following the incident. The RSS-BJP activists had ransacked the Thalassery CPI(M) local committee office around 2 p.m. on Saturday after the body was taken to Komathuvayal after a post-mortem. A television set and furniture were damaged. A few houses of CPI(M) and BJP-RSS activists came under attack. A platoon of armed police had been deployed here. Inspector-General of Police V. Shantharam and Superintendent of Police S. Sreejith were camping here. A hartal observed by the BJP-RSS at the Thalassery Assembly constituency was total. Buses were exempted from the hartal.
