An RSS worker was pulled out of an autorickshaw in Kerala's Thalassery, and attacked with iron rods. The man, Suresh, suffered injuries to his head, and a leg. He's been taken to the Thalassery co-operative hospital.
Police have begun investigating the attack, suspected to be a case of political violence.
The attack on Suresh was reported a day after BJP leaders and workers, including Union Ministers Kiren Rijiju and VK Singh, protested against political killings in Kerala.
The Communist Party - Marxist (CPM) countered the move with a protest of its own.
Even on Sunday, another RSS worker, AV Biju, had been forced out of an autorickshaw and stabbed in front of children.
