The Murder
In the wee hours of 1 July, SDPI workers allegedly summoned by Campus Front activists, lay in wait for Abhimanyu around the gates of Maharaja college. As he emerged with a few others to paste welcome-posters for the new batch, a brawl was created under the cover of which an SDPI  man punched his face and killed him with a quick knife stab which was pulled out instantly.

Abhimanyu’s fellowmate Arjun was also stabbed in similar fashion and continues to be in critical condition at the hospital since.

The plot, police believe, was hatched by Campus Front workers from college who coordinated with SDPI – the political wing of Popular Front(PFI) – to kill as many SFI workers as possible to enhance their presence in the campus dominated where SFI reigns supreme.

Vaduthala native Muhammed, a second-year Arabic student at Maharajas, is also an accused in the Thoduppuzha palm-chopping case. He has gone into hiding along with his family.

Around 200 PFI workers are under police scanner while 11 have been arrested so far.
