A bandh called by Sangh Parivar outfits on Tuesday in protest against the hacking of an RSS leader crippled normal life in Kerala. Taking a cue, Union home minister Rajnath Singh spoke to chief minister Oommen Chandy asking him to take strict action to stop political killings in the state.

Singh called Chandy after the murder of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh activist E Manoj and discussed with him the killings of political and social activists in Kerala. “The home minister has expressed concern over the murder of social activist Manoj and asked the Kerala CM to take strict action to stop such political killings,” said a home ministry official.

Chandy told Singh that a team of high-level officials have rushed to the spot to probe the incident. Chandy assured Singh that he would convene an all-party meet to discuss the issue of political killings in Kerala.

Police had booked eight CPI(M) activists. RSS-BJP leaders had sought a CBI inquiry into the murder.

Kerala home minister Ramesh Chennithala said, “We will ensure a speedy and impartial probe,” adding his government would not allow blood bath in the state.
