Kasargod, July 18, 2016 : A police team led by Payyanur Circle Inspector V Ramesh has succeeded in arresting four RSS activists with regard to the murder of CPI member C V Dhanaraj on the night of July 11. It may be recalled here that Dhanaraj was murdered right in front of his family members by a gang which had barged into his house.
Those arrested are Vaishak (21), Sukesh (24), Prajith Lal (21) and Anoop (21). They are likely to be produced before the court today.
Police who are investigating into the case have learnt that an attempt had been made on the life of Dhanaraj even once in the past. Though at the outset a political enmity seems to be the reason behind the murder, police are trying to investigate the case from different angles.
It may be recalled here that BMS activist CK Ramachandran was also murdered in a similar fashion. However, police are yet to make any arrest in this case.
