According to a report in The Indian Express, the police have found three BJP workers responsible for the attack on the youths, but there is no official confirmation as of now.
The unrest in the southern state flared up after RSS leader Kundan Chandrawat offered a ₹1 crore bounty on Kerala Chief Minister P Vijayan's head.
"Two people have been injured (in the bomb attack) and they have been taken to a hospital at Kozhikode. The police has begun the investigation," an official at the Nadapuram police station told IANS.
A CPM office was also allegedly burnt down in Kozhikode. The state secretariat of the CPI-M has called for a state-wide protest on Friday evening against the statement of the RSS leader.
