Recently, an RSS karyakartha Choorakkad Biju was hacked to death, allegedly by CPI(M) activists, at Payyanur town in Kerala CM Pinari Vijayan’s home district Kannur. Police said Biju and his friend Pandaravalappil Rajesh were travelling on a motorcycle when they were knocked down by an Innova car. A gang alighted from the car and hacked him on the neck. Based on a complaint filed by Rajesh, the police registered a case against seven CPM workers.
Following this incident, Kerala BJP President Shri Kummanam Rajasekharan tweeted a video which showed communists of Kannur celebrating the murder of Biju. In response to this, Kerala Police have registered a case against Kummanam for allegedly spreading a fake video on social media. He has been booked under IPC Section 153(a) (promoting enmity between groups) on a petition by Muhammed Siraj, district secretary of Students Federation of India (SFI).
BJP Kerala chief Kummanam Rajasekharan on Tuesday said a video he posted of CPI(M) workers purportedly celebrating the killing of an RSS activist was not fake and challenged the State government to register a case against him.
“Let them investigate and register a case.. I’m prepared to go to jail,” Rajasekharan told reporters in Kochi.
He claimed that CPI(M) workers celebrated the killing of the RSS worker, Biju, in at least 14 places in the State.
Meanwhile, DGP TP Senkumar on Tuesday directed the Kannur SP to investigate and verify the authenticity of the video.
Talking to reporters in Kannur, CPI(M) state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan alleged the BJP State President tried to incite violence by circulating the video.
He claimed that during the previous UDF regime, RSS killed 27 CPI(M) activists, but the BJP did not demand the imposition of the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) then, he said.
Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan had on Monday informed the State Assembly that a case would be registered against Rajasekharan if necessary, for allegedly “spreading false” reports related to the killing of the RSS worker in Kannur.
