A petrol bomb was reportedly hurled outside a Hindu leader’s house at Kumbakonam in Tamil Nadu’s Thanjavur district in the wee hours on Monday.
The petrol bomb was reportedly hurled in front of Hindu Munnani functionary Sakarapani’s residence in Kumbakonam on Monday at around 5 a.m. However, no one was hurt in the incident.
After hearing the unusual noise, Sakarapani opened the door at 5 a.m. and saw a petrol bomb in front of his house, the Hindu Munnani leader said.
At this, he immediately alerted the local police station, he added.
Senior police officers including Thanjavur SP reached the spot.
Police are conducting the investigation.
Further details are awaited.
Earlier too, petrol bombs were hurled at some Hindu leaders in different parts of the state.
Two months ago, in September, three petrol bombs were hurled into the house of a Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) member in the Madurai district of Tamil Nadu.
The incident was captured in the CCTV footage, which, as per the timestamp, took place around 7:38 p.m. at the Mel Anuppanadi Housing Board area in Madurai at the residence of M.S. Krishnan.
The CCTV footage shows bike-borne men were seen approaching the house and hurling petrol bombs before the duo sped away.
No one was injured in the accident, Shanmugam Madurai South’s Assistant Commissioner told ANI at that time.
