IndiaRSS activist injured in a bomb he was making that blasted

RSS workers in Kerala were allegedly making a bomb that suddenly set off blasting off two fingers of one of them.

In Kannur, Kerala, the RSS worker, Biju (40) allegedly blew up part of his own house in this bomb explosion, apparently while making a country-made bomb in Kannur’s Koothuparamba area, police said on Thursday.

Biju is accused in the 2016 murder case of CPI(M) activist Dhanraj, and lost his two fingers in the incident that happened late on Saturday night.

“We received information about the incident which happened yesterday night. The blast occurred near Biju’s house. The forensic team has begun an investigation into the blast to ascertain whether bomb-making was progressing or it was due to some other reason,” police said. Biju is currently undergoing treatment at Malabar Medical College near here. A case has been registered under the Explosives Act, police said.

This would not be the first time that an RSS terrorist worker has been hurt while manufacturing a bomb. Last year, a BJP worker was killed in a bomb explosion, apparently while making bombs in his house in Kottayampoyil near Koothuparamba.
