Shops and business establishments have downed shutters and vehicles are mostly off the roads in Guruvayur and Manaloor towns in Thrissur district following a hartal called by BJP to protest the killing of an RSS worker at Nenmeni.
 
The 23-year-old RSS worker, Anandan, was hacked to death  allegedly by CPI(M) workers yesterday in broad day light.
 
While the BJP has blamed CPI(M) for the murder, the marxist party in a statement yesterday denied its role in the incident.

The funeral is expected to be held this afternoon.
