Reports suggest that the Kerala Police have identified the main suspect, Sanjay Dutt, and said he would be arrested soon. According to eyewitnesses, Sajay Dutt stabbed Abhimanyu.
The murder of a 15-year-old school student during the Padayanivettom temple festival at Vallikunnam in Kerala’s Alappuzha district has snowballed into a political row between the Bharatiya Janata Party and Communist Party of India (Marxist).
Abhimanyu, the Class X student, was stabbed to death during an altercation between two groups on Wednesday night.
CPI(M) strongly protests and condemns the brutal murder of Abhimanyu, a young activist of the Students` Federation of India (SFI) by members of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) at Charumoodu, Vallikunnam, in Alappuzha district, Kerala. pic.twitter.com/qDeN8SfP0b
As per the CPI(M), the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) was behind the murder of Abhimanyu, who was reportedly a Students Federation of India (SFI) activist. “It was a clear political murder,” said CPI(M) Alappuzha district secretary R Nazar.
However, BJP Alappuzha district president AV Gopakumar has denied the allegations, saying the party is “trying to politicize the issue”.
“Police officials and the father of the victim said politics was not involved in the incident. CPI(M) is desperate to make it a political murder to get some sympathy as the party was exposed in some of the recent political clashes,” said Gopakumar.
Later, Abhimanyu’s father A Kumar claimed that his son was not active in politics. “It is a fact that all our family members are Communists. He may be an SFI activist at school but he was not at all active. My second son was about to write the SSLC examination. I have no idea why he was killed like this,” said his father.
