  • CPI(M)‘s district secretary for Trivandrum on Wednesday condemned the attack on the BJP state committee office and termed the BJP’s allegations of CPI(M) involvement as baseless. He also asserted that no one from the party was involved in the attack.

  • Earlier, a crude bomb was hurled at a BJP office in the heart of Trivandrum city, with the party alleging that CPI(M) workers were behind the attack. No one was injured in the incident, police said.

  • The incident occurred last night, shortly after BJP state president Kummanam Rajasekharan had left the office for Kozhikode, where preparations are on for the three-day National Executive and Council meeting from 23 September.

  • At least four workers were on the top floor of the building, which housed the office, when the bomb was hurled. Though no one was injured, glass panes of the main entrance door were damaged in the incident.

  • The incident comes close on the heels of a series of sporadic clashes between CPI(M) and BJP workers in the past few months in northern Kannur district.
