Thiruvananthapuram, April 24 (BPNS)

In a major breakthrough, Kerala police have taken into custody two main culprits in the murder of the RSS leader Sreenivasan who was hacked to death on April 16th. Police said that those in custody are SDPI workers.

North Zone Inspector General, Ashok Yadav told media persons at Palakkad that the main culprit in the case, Iqbal who had directly participated in the murder is in police custody. Another person, Fayas who is one of the main conspirators in the murder of Sreenivasan is also under custody. Ashok Yadav said that Fayas is a close relative of the slain SDPI leader, Subair. It is to be noted that Subair was hacked to death allegedly by three RSS activists on April 15th as a retaliation to the murder of RSS local leader Sanjith who was killed allegedly by SDPI workers on November 15, 2021, while he was driving a two-wheeler with his wife.

The three RSS activists in the Subair murder case are already in judicial custody and five SDPI activists who were conspirators in the murder of RSS leader Sreenivasan are in police custody.

Ashok Yadav told media persons that the other SDPI activists who were directly involved in the murder of Sreenivasan are identified and the police are zeroing in on them. He said that taking Iqbal into custody is a major breakthrough in the case as he was the one who executed the killing and had led other killers.

Meanwhile, police patrolling has been intensified in Palakkad district and police are checking all the vehicles that are coming into the district from Tamil Nadu and those vehicles that are going out of Palakkad.

It is to be noted that the killings and counter killings have disturbed the atmosphere of peace in Palakkad district and the BJP had boycotted the all peace meeting called by the State minister for electricity, K. Krishnankutty who hails from the district on Tuesday. BJP Kerala state general secretary, C. Krishnakumar while boycotting the meeting said that there was no peace meeting after RSS leader Sanjith was killed and that the BJP, RSS workers were not getting justice from the Kerala police.
