The victim, Anandam, was riding a two-wheeler when he was attacked down by a group of men in a auto.

His bike was hit by a vehicle first and when he fell into the road, the gang inflicted deep wounds on his body, leading to his death at 1330 hrs. Although the severely wounded RSS worker was rushed to a private hospital, he succumbed to his wounds. Allegedly, the murder was executed by activists of the state's ruling Communist Party of India (Marxist) - who in recent days had been at loggerheads with the right-wing group.

The CPM has, in turn, accused the BJP and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) of resorting to violence and denied the involvement of its government and leadership in the killings.

The party, which took out marches in protest against the murder in various parts of Thrissur district on Sunday evening, will hold protest demonstrations across Kerala on Monday.

BJP national president Amit Shah in a tweet has condemned the murder and demanded an explanation from chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan. In the wake of this brutal incident against RSS worker, the BJP state president Kummanam Rajasekharan called "LeftistTerror bloodshed continues in Kerala as BJP worker Anand murdered brutally in Guruvayur, Thrissur. The Government should urgent steps to arrest the culprits and ensure that such incidents do not recur". He was identified as Vadaketherikathu Anandan, 26, second accused in the murder of DYFI leader and student, Kunnamkorathu Fazil of Brahmakulam, in 2013. "This incident proves that the CPI (M) is not prepared to lay down arms even after all the peace efforts". The trial in the Fasil murder case is pending in court. There was threat to his life. We are yet to find how many people were behind the attack. His body was kept at Thrissur Medical College. A factsheet released by the CPI (M) said that 85 CPI (M) workers and 65 RSS workers were killed in political violence from 2000 to 2017.
