Moharana was also earlier attacked in 2019 by armed miscreants in front of Gulanagar High School under Kendrapara Sadar police station while he was returning home.
The police said the main accused, also a Pattambi native, was part of the six-member group that entered Sreenivasan’s shop and hacked him, causing his death.
Around 14-15 people were part of the conspiracy and in furtherance of the same they had initially made attempts to kill two other RSS leaders, officials claimed.
The doctors at the hospital said that Bhat had suffered a mild heart attack but he is at no risk. He will be under observation for a day or two.
The prohibitory orders notwithstanding, sporadic incidents of violence were reported from across the city on Sunday during the funeral procession of slain RSS leader.
Chandravat, in a meeting here, had announced the bounty to avenge the killing of RSS workers in Kerala, allegedly by CPI-M workers.
