He urged the state government to ensure the guilty must be punished.

"The gruesome killing of Mr. K. Armstrong, Tamil Nadu state Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) president, outside his Chennai house is highly deplorable and condemnable. An advocate by profession, he was known as a strong Dalit voice in the state. The state Govt. must punish the guilty," he said.

Bahujan Samaj Party's Tamil Nadu chief Armstrong was hacked to death by six bike-borne men near his house in Chennai on Friday.

The six men attacked Armstrong when he was having a discussion with a few party functionaries near his house in the city's Sembium area and then fled.

The family rushed him to a hospital where he was declared brought dead.
