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.
