The deceased man, Chandran Unnithan, was part of the protest march taken out by Sabarimala Karma Samiti on Wednesday evening which came under attack by CPI(M) workers.

The Kerala Police has arrested two workers of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) (CPI-M) in connection with the death of a 55-year-old man during protests that erupted over the entry of two women in the Sabarimala temple on January 2.

The protests had happened over Bindu and Kanakadurga, two women in their 40s, who defied dire threats from saffron organisations and offered prayers at the temple on January 2. In the aftermath, a dawn-to-dusk ‘hartal’ was called by pro-Hindutva groups.
