The Kerala police, probing the murder case of the RSS activist A Sanjith, have extended the investigation to Coimbatore, a stronghold of SDPI, the political wing of the Islamist organisation Popular Front of India. Police are probing whether the SDPI goons, who hacked the RSS worker to death, are from Coimbatore.
A Sanjith was hacked to death in front of his wife allegedly by the Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) goons in Kerala’s Palakkad district on Monday, November 15. He was an RSS mandal boudhik pramukh of his area and one of the most prominent workers of the Sangh in Kerala’s Palakkad district.
Weapons used to kill the Kerala based RSS activist A Sanjith recovered
The Kerala police have found the weapons which were used to kill the RSS activist. On the Palakkad-Thrissur National Highway, four swords were discovered wrapped in sacks from Kannannur. The swords were bundled together in a sack and dumped under a small bridge on Kannannur’s service road. One of the locals discovered the sack. Bloodstains were found on the swords, and the existence of a white car at the scene was also established.
It may be recalled that reports had said that the assailants, who came in a white car, stopped A Sanjith’s bike and attacked him in broad daylight in front of many people including his wife.
The CCTV footage, which the police collected from within a 5 km radius of the site of the incident after the murder, also showed the presence of a white car at the spot of the crime.
Police assume assailants came from Coimbatore, an SDPI stronghold
The police, based on the CCTV footage confirmed that the white car that was suspected to be used by the assailants was also spotted at Peruvambu around 6.30 am on Monday, the day A Sanjith was killed. Later, the car reached Uppumpadam near Mambaram where the RSS worker was hacked to death. The car halted at the spot for nearly one hour and 30 minutes, confirmed the police.
After examining the CCTV footage, police believe that the car reached Mambaram through the Kerala-Tamil Nadu border at Thathamangalam. If so, the accused must have come from Coimbatore, said the police.
The police say that the assailants might have travelled from Palakkad to Thrissur before dumping their weapons in Kannannur and returning to Coimbatore. This, according to the police, might have been an attempt to mislead the investigations.
The police also confirmed that the white car that was spotted at the crime spot had crossed the place where the weapons were found abandoned.
Though the weapons used in the murder have now been recovered, police have not been able to locate the suspects or the car’s details yet.

Kerala : RSS member hacked to death in front of his wife by SDPI goons
On Monday, November 15, A Sanjith, a 26-year-old Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) worker was hacked to death allegedly by the Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) goons. SDPI is the political wing of the Islamist organisation Popular Front of India (PFI).
The incident occurred at Ellapully in Palakkad district at 9:30 in the morning. A Sanjith was a native of Elappully. He was going for his work on his motorcycle with his wife when he was brutally attacked by the SDPI members.
The local report suggests that the assailants, who came in a car, stopped his bike and attacked him in broad daylight in front of many people including his wife.
Sanjith who was seriously injured in an alleged attack was rushed to the hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.
Speaking to the media, Palakkad BJP district president KM Haridas termed the incident a “well-planned” political murder by the SDPI. He slammed the LDF government led by CM Pinarayi Vijayan government for backing SDPI.
“A Sanjith was going with his wife when he was stopped and brutally attacked. The SDPI in the state has got the ruling party’s backing,” Haridas alleged.
There have been political fights in the area previously and today’s attack is believed to be a result of those.
The police have kept the deceased RSS workers’ body at the mortuary of the Palakkad district hospital and launched an investigation into the incident.
SDPI has been involved in several clashes with RSS
It may be noted that SDPI has been involved in several clashes with RSS in the past. On February 24 2021, R. Nandu alias Nandu Krishna, 22-year-old Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) Shakha Mukhya Shikshak at Nagamkulangara in Wayalar village panchayat in Alappuzha was hacked to death allegedly by the Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) goons.
A few days before the aforementioned incident, the Popular Front of India (PFI) had chosen to do a rally parading men dressed in RSS uniforms. The men being paraded were also chained. The audio and visuals from the rally confirm a lot of Islamic chanting, including Allahu Akbar, la ilaha illallah muhammadur rasulullah, and others chanted during the procession. The rally was held in Tenhipalam town in Malappuram district of Kerala.
Some sources had said that PFI’s rally was to ‘celebrate’ the centenary of the ‘1921 Malabar Hindu Genocide’ or Moplah massacre, which is better known in history as the Malabar Rebellion of 1921, in which more than 10,000 Hindus were killed and as many a 100,000 Hindus were forced to leave Kerala in the wake of the riots.
