THRISSUR -- A Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) worker was hacked to death late night on 13 February in the Mukkattukara area.

20-year-old worker Nirmal was stabbed to death during celebrations at a festival in a temple here.

The BJP state unit has alleged the Communist Party of India (Marxist) was behind the incident and has called for a strike in the district today.

The conflict between the BJP-RSS alliance and the CPI(M) has been on a rise for the past few months. Earlier last month, the BJP accused the (CPI(M)) for the murder of one of its workers. A 52-year old BJP worker, Mullapram Ezhuthan Santhosh was killed when he was alone in his house.

Further details are awaited.
