Malappuram , Jan 24: Four persons were injured in fresh attacks in Tanur, near here, today even as a tense situation prevailed in Tirur and adjoining areas of the district following the killing of an RSS activist on Saturday.

A BJP sympathiser was attacked around 6 a.m. by unidentified persons who came in a car, police said.

Soon after the incident, three persons belonging to a minority community were attacked in the area, they said, adding the injured were rushed to Kozhikode Medical College hospital.

RSS activist Ravi was allegedly killed by some activists of National Development Front, a Muslim outfit, on Saturday night in Tirur. Following the killing, the RSS observed a dawn-to-dusk bandh in the district on Sunday.

In all, eight persons had been injured in the attacks so far in various places of the district.

The fresh incidents had come at a time when the district administration had initiated stringent measures, including banning of two-wheelers in Tirur and pillion-riding in the entire district after it was found that motorcycles had been used to carry out the attacks.

Though an all-party meeting was held in Tirur last night to restore peace, today’s attacks have worsened the situation, police said, adding elaborate security arrangements had been made across the district.
