Alappuzha: Following the brutal murders of two politicians, the Alappuzha District Collector imposed prohibitory orders under CrPC section 144 in the district on Sunday and Monday.
Former Leader of Opposition Ramesh Chennithala accused that police are incapable of curbing the violence.
The two murders happened on Saturday night and Sunday morning. Both victims were state leaders of two arch-rival organisations in Kerala, and the second murder is believed to be in retaliation to the former.
SDPI state secretary KS Shan was hacked by a group of four members at Mannancherry on Saturday night. He was rushed to private hospitals in Alappuzha and then shifted to Kochi. His death was confirmed by 12.45 am.
BJP state committee member and OBC Morcha state secretary from Alappuzha was killed in his home by the miscreants within 12 hours of the murder of Shan. Ranjeet Sreenivas, the deceased, was a candidate in the Alappuzha constituency in the 2016 assembly elections.
