Two injured in blasts at RSS office in Kozhikode
Kozhikode, March 3 (IANS) Two people were injured after unidentified persons hurled bombs at an RSS office at Kallachi here on Thursday night, a police official said.
“Two people have been injured and they have been taken to a hospital at Kozhikode. The police has begun the investigation,” an official at the Nadapuram police station told IANS.
The immediate provocation for this action is seen as a possible retaliation to a Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) leader from Madhya Pradesh, Kundan Chandrawat’s threat on Wednesday that he would offer a sum of Rs 1 crore to have Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan killed.
The state secretariat of the CPI-M has called for a state-wide protest on Friday evening against the statement of the RSS leader.
4 injured in crude bomb attack on RSS office in Kerala
Kozhikode (PTI): Four RSS workers were injured after some unknown persons hurled a crude bomb at the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh office near Nadapuram in the district today, 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.
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 Chandravat, ‘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.
