Palakkad (Kerala): Police arrested another Popular Front of India (PFI) worker on Tuesday night in connection with the murder of an RSS worker in Palakkad which took place on November 15. This is the second arrest in the past two days in connection with the crime. The worker is an area-level officer bearer of PFI.
This apprehension comes after the arrest of a Popular Front of India (PFI) office-bearer on Monday night. S Sanjith, an RSS worker, was hacked to death allegedly by the workers of the Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI), the political wing of the PFI, on November 15.
The victim’s wife had said she could identify the people who came in a car and killed her husband. Sanjith (27) was hacked to death on November 15 while he was taking his wife to her workplace, the police had said. Earlier today, police said they have taken three people into custody. The BJP and Sangh Parivar organisations have alleged that the activists of Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI), the political offshoot of Islamist outfit Popular Front of India (PFI), were behind the broad daylight murder.
According to the police, the deceased was waylaid and attacked when he was travelling with his wife on his motorbike. Further investigation is underway.
