In a major breakthrough, the Kerala police have arrested six persons in connection with the murder of a BJP leader. According to the police, the six persons alleged to be CPM workers were picked up in Talassery after investigations suggested their link to the murder which seems to be politically motivated.
The police is still ascertaining the exact role played by the suspects, but add that the six were part of a conspiracy to murder the BJP leader. "Investigations are on and more details will emerge soon," the officer also added. The officer added that the murder could have been a result of a clash between the ABVP and the SFI workers at the Brennan College in Thalassery during the Vivekanand Jayanthi celebrations.
