THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: An explosion took place at a building owned by a Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) worker in Kerala's Kannur on Thursday. 

The explosive that went off was a country-made bomb

The police suspect that the explosion took place while RSS worker Valayangadan Raghu was making a bomb in the building. 

At least 500 gms of gunpowder has been seized from the building, that was apparently used in the bomb-making. Roof tiles and window parts were blown away in the blast. No one was injured in the blast.

Police have registered a complaint against the RSS worker, however, he along with his son managed to escape after the incident. 

Last year, a BJP worker lost his life while he was making country-made bombs in Koothuparamba. 

In early January this year, several BJP and RSS workers were taken into custody in Kerala in connection with hurling of a bomb at the venue of public meeting of CP(M) state secretary in Kannur.
