"Biju had police protection till about two weeks back and then it was suddenly taken away for reasons not known to us. I fear that this could be a planned but there is no doubt that this is a clear case of institutional negligence," he said.

The Minister said it was shocking and alarming to know about the brutal "case of one of our supporters Biju", who was the RSS Unit Chief of Kakkampara in Kanoor district.

"It is more disconcerting to know that this has happened in the city from where the Chief Minister hails. If he doesn't take care of the and order situation in his own city, there is little that we can expect for the state at large," Rudy said.
