Hindu Munnani State Spokesperson Mookambikai Mani said Yamuna's condition was stable.

She is responding to treatment, he said.

40-year-old Sasikumar was hacked to death on 22 September here, leading to tension in the district and neighbouring Tirupur.

Sasikumar, district spokesperson of the organisation, was returning home in Subramaniampalayam, in the outskirts, on a two-wheeler when the unidentified assailants chased him on motorcycles and attacked him with sickles.

The killing had triggered protests which turned violent during the funeral procession here. Senior BJP leaders, including Union minister Pon Radhakrishnan had condemned the murder. The probe in the incident has been transferred to the Crime-Branch CID.
