On October 16, an RSS worker was hacked to death in Bengaluru, which triggered massive protests by BJP and RSS workers.

Reacting to the incident, RSS Media Coordinator for Karnataka, Rajesh Padmar said the state government should take strong steps to stop such politically-motivated killings.

He also demanded an immediate and an impartial probe into it. "In the last two years, more than 10 RSS-VHP-BJP activists have been killed.It is a dangerous development in a democratic set-up," Padmar said.
