KOZHIKODE: A Communist Party of India (Marxist) worker’s house was damaged in a powerful bomb explosion at Chekiyad Mamundari in the Valayam police station limits in Vadakara on Monday night. The roof of the house of M.P. Kumaran was destroyed in the blast. There were no casualties as the occupants were outside the house, the police said. Preliminary investigation revealed that a country-made device allegedly kept inside the house had exploded due to friction. The police also recovered an old sword from the house.

The rural areas of the district had witnessed violent clashes between rival political parties before and after the recent Lok Sabha polls.
