Twenty-four-year-old Shyama Prasad, an RSS/ABVP worker was hacked to death in Kannur on Friday.
According to Peravoor police, he was hacked to death by a gang of masked men, who stopped him while he was riding his bike.
Shyama Prasad is a student at Industrial Training Institute in Kakkayangad and was the mukhya sikshak of a local RSS sakha. According to the police, he was associated with the ABVP in the institute.
"He was going home at Chittaruparamb from Kankkayangad when he was attacked by a group of four men," the police said.
Following Shyamaprasad's murder, the BJP in the district has called for a dawn to dusk hartal on Saturday. The party has, however, assured that vehicles will be exempted from the hartal.
The BJP State President condemned the murder.
