The ashes of slain Hindu Munnani functionary, Sasikumar were immersed in the River Noyyal in Chadivayal, on the outskirts today.
Unlike the funeral procession, which witnessed large scale violence and arson, the ceremony was a low key affair, confined to only relatives and a handful of leaders of Hindu outfits, with the police keeping strict vigil to prevent any eventualities.
The police were deployed at various sensitive areas to prevent untoward incidents and to make the situation incident-free.
The BJP, which had announced state-wide protests against the killing, has decided to not to stage any demonstration in and around the city.
