Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday urged Kerala Chief Minister Pinrayi Vijayan to curb political violence in the state, a day after an RSS activist was hacked to death in Thiruvananthapuram.
“Spoke to Kerala CM regarding the recent incidents of political violence in the state,” tweeted Singh.
“I have expressed my concern about the law and order situation in the state. Political violence is unacceptable in a democracy. I expect the political violence in Kerala is curbed and the perpetrators are brought to justice expeditiously.”
On Saturday night, a Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) activist, E. Rajesh, 34, was murdered in the Kerala capital. Suspected members of the Communist Party of India-Marxist have been taken into custody in connection with the murder.
