Comrade Fasil was area joint secretary of the DYFI at Thaikkat and SFI area joint secretary of Manalur. Fasil was the one another victim of the Sangh Parivar 's murderous politics in Kerala. At the very age of 21 he was hacked to death by the RSS goons at Kiyare Junction at Bhrahmakulam, near Guruvayur, on 4 November 2013. It was just after one month of an another sfi activist comrade Sajin Shahul was killed by the same saffron fascists. Though Fasil was rushed to hospital, his life could not be saved.

Fasil, 21, son of Kunnamkorath Salim of Brahmakulam was a Civil diploma holder. He was working as supervisor in a construction company. Comrade Fasil was never scared of holding the flag of 'independence, democracy and Socialism' even at point of danger or the continues threats by the communal forces on left activists in the area. Comrade Fasil lives through the many more struggles against communalism and becomes a light in front of our march towards an equitable society.

Comrade sudipto Gupta was the member of SFI West Bengal state committee and former general secretary of Netaji Nagar college. He was a beloved comrade of ours, extremely popular among masses. After loosing his mother few years back he was taking care of his old father too. A master degree holder in political science from Ravindra Bharati University used to do tuition and yes definitely SFI till his last breath. A brilliant singer and a powerful writer who was working on recollecting the history of student movement in early 70's with Com Shyamal Chakraborty, when sudipto was murdered by Mamta Banarjee's police in a protest demanding campus democracy.

The day of his assassination was a black day in India's student movement. Many student organizations together came down to the street along with million other common people of Kolkata and showed their anger and resistance on 2, April 2013. He along with many other comrades got arrested and beaten up by the police. He was brutally attacked in the protest place first and even in police van later. The 23 year old brave student leader was murdered by the police of TMC government. Comrade Sudipto remains as the symbol of struggles for campus democracy. The slogans he taught us, the flag he painted red with his blood inspires thousand sudiptos everyday in his state and outside.. ''Choto choto kurider fotabi bole tui abr fire asbi..'' [making those buds blossoms u will return..]

The Central Executive committee of the Students’ Federation of India salutes the brave martyr Comrade Rohit, who was killed by the ABVP goons in the Chakmoh College of Hamirpur District in Himachal Pradesh on 26,September 2012. Comrade Rohit was the student of Hons 2nd year and was instrumental in ensuring SFI’s victory in 2 seats in the recently held Students’ union elections. On last Saturday, he had stopped these ABVP goons from harassing a fellow girl student of the college; upon which these goons had warned him that he would be killed. on September 26 at around 10:30 in the morning they entered college with arms and killed Comrade Rohit; cutting short a brave, valiant and promising life, which in itself reflects everything that SFI stands for.

This incident is not merely a isolated case of violence, rather its part of the long chain of repeated incidents in the last five years in which ABVP has acted in perfect conglomeration with the BJP government of the state and the police administration, which has been busy aiding the parishad’s politics of violence. Hundreds of SFI cadres have bravely faced the brunt of these attacks and victimizations. Numerous others have had to face the false cases and academic victimizations, yet the white flag with the red star continues to fly high in the hill state of Himachal. This has been possible only due to the courage and sacrifice of comrades such as Rohit, who choose the slogan of Independence, Democracy and Socialism over their own lives. We dip our banner in respect of this brave comrade and promise to carry forward the task for which he gave away his life.

SFI leader Saifuddin Mollah was brutally murdered in Baruipur, South 24 Parganas district, West Bengal on 19th January,2014. Saifuddin, a post graduate student, was the president of Baruipur 2 rural local committee of SFI and was returning to his home in Sitakundu Bazar from a public meeting addressed by Suryakanta Mishra, the leader of opposition in the West Bengal assembly. He was forcibly kidnapped by Trinamool Congress goons and taken to a secluded place. He was mercilessly beaten, the entire body showed signs of savage torture. The news of his kidnapping reached to his family also and his brother rushed out to search for him. He even reached to the spot but was cordoned by the TMC assassins. Saifuddin was severely injured and was craving for a drop of water. But his brother was not allowed to do so. Meanwhile, the police was informed but they reached to the spot almost after two hours. Police brought Saifuddin to hospital where he was declared ‘brought dead’.
