BJP Local Leader aged about 42-years was murdered in full public view on Sunday afternoon, right in the heart of Bengaluru city near Commercial Street, in a brazen attack that sent shivers down the spine of onlookers.
Shops in Commercial street were forced to down shutters after RSS and BJP workers held protests on the streets, following which riot control police were deployed in the area.
Rudresh R, a resident of Shivajinagar, was on his way home in the afternoon at about 1.30 after attending an event of the RSS, when the assailant on a bike attacked him with a machete near a Hindu temple on Kamaraj road. The attacker, who was riding pillion, slit Rudresh’s throat from behind in a copybook ISIS style, witnesses told the police.
Rudresh, mandal president of the Shivajinagar shakha of the RSS and secretary of the BJP Shivajinagar, was returning on his bike after participating in a ‘patha sanchalana’ (route march) in the vicinity of RBANMS Grounds.
He stopped his bike around 11.30am in front of a photocopying shop next to Radhakrishna temple on Kamaraj Road and was talking to three of his friends — Kumar, Hari and Jairam — when two men on a black Pulsar bike attacked him.
Rudresh was immediately put into an autorickshaw and rushed to Bowring Hospital where he was declared brought dead. A real estate agent, Rudresh was also into milk business. Rudresh had participated in Goraksha activities in his area in last two years and was targeted by some Muslims beforehand. He was a resident of Milkmans Colony in Shivajinagar.
Both the attacker and his accomplice, who rode the bike, were wearing black masks generally used by the Jihadi assassins.
Locals who witnessed the attack alerted police. Cops from the Commercial Street police station rushed to the scene of the crime on Kamaraj street. They had to first calm down the agitated crowd that had gathered there, before beginning their work.
Police personnel have been posted near Kamaraj street and near Bowring hospital as a precautionary measure. At around 3.15 pm, several members of the BJP and RSS led a protest march to Commercial Street police station, demanding that the police arrest the culprits. The agitated crowd pelted stones at a car, and shops on Commercial Street were forced to down their shutters due to the disturbance in the area.
As the protesting crowds became unruly, RAF personnel were deployed in the area to prevent any possible incidents of violence over the murder.
The protesters blocked Commercial Road for over an hour, causing a huge traffic jam on the premier shopping avenue. They later moved to the spot where their colleague were killed and sat on dharna. The protesters set an 8pm deadline for the police to arrest Rudresh’s killers.
Though the motive behind the killing of Rudresh is still not divulged, the attacks on Hindu activists (specially on RSS) and the BJP workers and leaders are all time high in the southern states of India viz. Kerala, Tamilnadu and Karnataka.
While the RSS and BJP workers are being killed and victimized by the communist and Islamist goons (in Kerala the Communists hav a good understanding to attack Hindus Jointly), the Hindu activists and BJP men in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka are being murdered by the Al Umma Group and other home-grown Jihadi outfits.
RSS was established in 1925 as a Right wing group in India to protect Hindus from the onslaught various attacks on Hindus and to organise Hindus in a broad base social ambiance, now it has been shaped as big NGO engaged in various social works, but not to franchise the warrior spirit of Hindus.
In day alternative Hindus are being victimized in various states in India by the Jihadi attackers, but BJP Govt. in India (BJP is the political wing of RSS). led by PM Modi is totally failure to protect the safety security of Hindus in their land Bharat (India).
