Country-made bombs were hurled at a Seva Kendra run by the RSS and at the residence of a BJP worker at Thalassery in the district in the wee hours on Wednesday, an incident which comes after an RSS worker was hacked to death in the poll-bound state.

Police said the bombs were hurled at around 1.45 this morning.

“Only a window pane was damaged. None was injured”, police sources said about the attack at the Jaganatha Mandiram Seva Kendra run by the RSS at Temple Gate in Thalassery in the district.

A bomb was also hurled at the house of Subramaniam, a BJP worker damaging the compound wall, the sources said.

The incident comes after violence erupted in poll-bound Kerala as 27-year-old RSS worker, Sujit, was hacked to death in front of his aged parents in the district on Monday night.

While BJP had slammed CPI-M for murder of Sujit, the Marxist party has denied it, saying it was the fallout of a local incident relating to insulting a girl.

Police said the accused behind the murder have been identified and the arrests would be made soon.

    I wonder what Shekhar Gupta thinks about this? Wait, violence against Hindus? That's ok. Violence against other communities is what he covers.

      Violence against Bjp can no way be termed as violence against Hindus. It is a strategic practice of RSS and its all sister organisations to portray any adversity of their own to be the adversity of Hindus as sect. Moreover, one fails to understand that a party which is responsible for carrying out the biggest genocide of the independent India, how can allege others of perpetrating violence.

          Communists should not talk about democratic values because they are those who challange their rivals in a non democratic way. Hypocracy.
