A worker of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) was hacked to death in front of his wife in Kerala’s Palakkad district on Monday morning.

The deceased, identified as S Sanjith (27), was waylaid by a gang around 9am when he was riding his wife to work in the Mambaram area of the district.

BJP district president KM Haridas blamed the Social Democratic Party of India, political wing of Popular Front of India, for the death.

Police said Sanjith, hailing from Elappully, received more than 50 stab wounds. Tension has gripped the locality following the murder and police were keeping a strict vigil. 

An investigation has been launched to trace the accused who fled the scene after the incident, they said.

The BJP said the assailants followed Sanjith in a vehicle, hit his two-wheeler and when he fell down they hacked him to death in front of his wife.

Condemning the killing of the RSS worker, BJP state president K Surendran said it was a "planned murder" and blamed the failure from the part of the police and Pinarayi Vijayan-led government in letting such incidents happen in the state.
