A Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) worker, who was an accused in Faisal murder case, was stabbed to death on Thursday in Malappuram district.

30-year-old RSS worker identified as Vipin was found dead with several stab wounds on his body. According to police, he was part of the group that murdered Faisal Pullani eight months ago after he converted to Islam.

Vipin was released on bail last week and was on his bike, when he was attacked. Vipin, a native of Tirur, was attacked near Pulinchode in Tirur around 7 am. 

Kodinhi Faisal alias Anilkumar (Unni), aged 30, was found dead on November 19, 2016 after he converted to Islam. After the death of Faisal, his mother and family members, including two sisters, had embraced Islam.

This is second time, a Faisal murder accused has been targeted. On August 2, another accused in the case Thayyil Lijeesh was injured when an Innova car hit his motorbike at Parappanangadi.

Lijeesh later had approached the police and alleged that the accident was a deliberate attempt to kill him.
