Hours after a bomb was hurled at RSS office in near Nadapuram in the Kozhikode on Thursday night, CPI(M) office was reportedly set on fire. However, there were no reports of casualties in later incidents, while at least four people were injured in bomb blast.
Four RSS workers were injured after some unknown persons hurled a crude bomb at the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh office near Nadapuram in the district on Thursday night, police said.
The incident occurred at Kallachi around 8.30 PM. The injured have been identified as Babu, Vineesh, Sudhir and Sunil, they said.
While Babu and Vineesh, who suffered severe injuries in the abdomen and legs, have been admitted to the Kozhikode Medical College Hospital (KMCH), the other two have been taken to a private hospital here, a senior police official said.
The investigation is underway to ascertain the motive behind the attack, he said.
The attack took place hours after an RSS functionary in Madhya Pradesh announced a Rs one crore bounty for beheading Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan.
Kundan Chandrawat, ‘Sah Prachar Pramukh’ of RSS in Madhya Pradesh’s Ujjain, announced the reward to avenge the killing of its workers in Kerala, allegedly by CPI-M workers.
“The Kerala Chief Minister is killing our RSS workers who want to take this country forward. I will pay Rs one crore to anyone who beheads him even if I have to sell my house,” Chandravat was seen saying in a video, which has gone viral.
The RSS, however, distanced itself from Chandravat’s remarks.
