A 36-year-old RSS worker was allegedly killed and his body with throat slit was found dumped in his field on Wednesday morning at Kamed village in the district, a police officer said.

The deceased, Himmat Patidar, who was former RSS Shivpur mandal karyawah (president), was found dead with his face burnt in his field located under Bilpank police station area, the officer said.

"Patidar had gone to his field in Kamed on Tuesday night. His family members panicked after he did not return home during the night. They started looking for him and found his body lying in their field in the morning," district additional superintendent of police (ASP) Pradeep Sharma said.

"Unidentified accused allegedly slit his throat, burnt his face before dumping his body there," he added.

Police have recovered a torch from the spot and his motorcycle was found lying around ten metres away, the ASP said.

His body was sent for post-mortem, police said adding that a case has been registered against unidentified accused and a probe has been launched in this connection.

According to Sharma, police have got some leads and are hopeful of cracking the case.

According to police, the deceased's brother, Sanjay Patidar, is also associated with the RSS. He is the district RSS music band chief.

Former Madhya Pradesh CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan had strong words against the political killings.

"There is state of chaos in the Madhya Pradesh. Is this the "transformation" promised by the Congress? Looting and other criminal activities have been increasing and the Congress government has been idle, giving embarrassing statements," he said.

The killing of RSS worker has taken place three days after the report of a BJP leader was killed.

BJP leader Manoj Thackeray was found dead in Madhya Pradesh on Sunday, less than a week after Mandsaur Municipal Corporation President Prahlad Bandhwar was shot dead.

Manoj Thackeray, an MLA from Balwadi, was found dead in a field in Warla police station limits.

Earlier, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and Mandsaur Municipal Corporation President, Prahlad Bandhwar, was shot dead in Nai Abaadi, Mandsaur on Thursday. He was shot by a bullet near the Central Bank at Nai Abadi area here. He died on the spot.

A day after the incident, Manish Bairagi, a BJP worker, was arrested in Rajasthan's Pratapgarh in relation to the death of Bandhwar.
