According to reports, police have identified the main accused in the incident where Abhimanyu, a 15-year-old was stabbed to death on Wednesday night in Alappuzha. Sanjay Datt has been identified as the main accused and police said that he would be arrested soon.
On Wednesday night, amidst a verbal spat during the Padayanivettom temple festival, Abhimanyu was hacked to death. Reportedly, Sanjay stabbed Abhimanyu. The police have taken Sanjay's father and sibling into custody as part of the investigation.
Meanwhile, while interacting with the media, Abhimanyu's father Ambili Kumar confirmed that he was not a political activist. He said, "Abhimanyu is a tenth class student and got an examination today. He never gets involved in any violence or dispute. His brother Anandhu is a DYFI activist. Even though all the family members are communists, Abhimanyu was never active in politics."
The CPM had alleged conspiracy behind Abhimanyu's murder. According to reports, the DYFI activists in the area had opposed the drug mafia working under RSS. This has provoked them and led to the murder. While interacting with the media, Charumoodu area committee secretary Binu said that Abhimanyu was an active SFI member.
Two other persons too got injured during the incident and are under treatment. At around 10 pm on Wednesday, the incident took place. It is reportedly said that the incident that resulted in the death of Abhimanyu was the continuation of an early spat that happened a few days back at a temple festival.
