Oh shed! In Kannur, RSS worker blows up roof while making bomb

Kannur: An explosion took place on the property of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) worker Valayangadan Raghu in Kannur’s Koothuparamba area, allegedly while he was making a bomb in his shed.

The explosive that went off was a country-made bomb.

Koothuparamba police said the blast occurred in a shed close to Raghu’s house. Roof tiles and window parts were blown away.

Police also recovered 500 gm of gun power, which was allegedly used to make bombs.

A case was registered against Raghu, but he and his son absconded after the incident.

Last year, a BJP worker died in an explosion in Koothuparamba while he was making country-made bombs.
