RSS office attacked in Kannur

Kannur: An RSS office at Payyannur here was tonight attacked allegedly by CPI-M workers. No one was inside it at the time of the incident, police said.

Only a forensic examination will reveal if the office was set on fire or a petrol bomb was hurled. It has suffered some damage, they said.

BJP workers alleged that the CPI-M was behind the attack.

The party called for a strike in Payyanur tomorrow.

However, CPI-M workers alleged that BJP activists hurled three country bombs at a motorcycle rally taken out by them at Payannur in the evening on the first death anniversary of CPI-M worker Dhanraj who was killed allegedly by RSS activists on July 11 last year.

Four workers suffered minor injuries in the incident, the workers said.

Police said a few houses of workers belonging to both parties were attacked.

Some persons have been taken into custody in connection with the incidents. The situation is under control, they said.
