THRUSSUR: A Rashtriya Swayam Sangh (RSS) worker was on Sunday killed in Thrissur in Kerala. He was allegedly hacked to death by CPIM workers, police said.

The 23-year-old victim identified as Anandan was riding a motorcycle when he was attacked by men who were in a car. 

He was rushed to hospital but succumbed to his injuries.

Anandan, hailing from Brahmakulam, was an accused in a case related to the murder of a CPIM worker in 2013.

BJP has alleged that as many as 120 BJP workers, 84 in Kannur alone, have been killed in Kerala since 2001. It has also claimed that 14 of these killings have taken place since Pinarayi Vijayan took over as the Chief Minister last year.

The CPIM has in turn, accused BJP and RSS of resorting to violence and denied the involvement of its government and leadership in political killings.
