Coimbatore: Just a few days after some people hurled a petrol bomb at a Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) Coimbatore’s office in Tamil Nadu, another petrol bomb was hurled targeting BJP leader in the state.
As per reports, a petrol bomb was hurled at BJP district secretary CR Nandkumar’s house in Coimbatore. The incident took place Wednesday early morning. The following incident was captured on the CCTV cameras installed at BJP leader’s house. According to the CCTV footage, the bomb which was hurled into the house hit the car parked inside after which it caught fire. The BJP district secretary’s house is situated at Ramalakshmi Nagar on Masakalipalayam Road in Tamil Nadu.
As per the footage, the family heard the loud noises and rushed out to put off the fire. After the matter was reported the concerned authorities rushed to the spot and registered a complaint in the matter.
Police suspect that the attack on the house could be a retaliatory action to the vandalism of statues of leaders, including Periyar or against the VHP’s Rath Yatra in the state.
The Vishwa Hindu Parishad’s ‘Ram Rajya Rath Yatra,’ aimed at mobilising support to build a Ram temple in Ayodhya reached Tirunelveli district yesterday amid protests by a section of political parties across the state.
