Thrissur: Kerala Police has initiated proceedings over issuing lookout notices against three persons for their alleged involvement in the killing of an RSS worker at Nenmeni in the temple town of Guruvayur Sunday.
"We have initiated proceedings. The accused have been identified," a top police official here said.
Another police official in Guruvayur said the car in which the killers had traveled belonged to a CPM worker, whose elder brother Fazil was killed four years ago.
The deceased, Anandan was an accused in the Fazil's murder.
The 23-year-old RSS worker was riding a motorcycle when he was attacked with swords and knives, allegedly by CPM workers, who came in a car.
The RSS worker was cremated this evening.
While the BJP blamed CPM for the murder, the Marxist party in a statement Sunday denied its role in the incident.
The BJP called for a 'hartal' Monday at the temple town of Guruvayur and Manaloor in protest. Shops and businesses downed shutters. Vehicles remained off roads.
The BJP leadership alleged that this was the third murder of BJP/RSS workers in the district since the Pinarayi Vijayan government came to power in May last year.
