Thiruvananthapuram: Unidentified persons hurled crude bombs at the newly constructed BJP state committee office near Kunnukuzhi in Thiruvananthapuram on Wednesday.
Two unidentified men, who came in bikes, threw country-made bombs at the new office building at Kunnukuzhi here.
The incident occurred around midnight last night, shortly after BJP state president Kummanam Rajasekharan had left the office for Kozhikode, where preparations are on for the three-day National Executive and Council meeting from September 23 which is being attended by senior party leaders and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, party sources said.
At least four workers were on the top floor of the building, housing the office, when the bomb was hurled.
Though no one was injured, glass panes of the main entrance door were damaged in the incident, Thiruvananthapuram City Police Commissioner S Sparjan Kumar said.
Television channels telecast a CCTV video footage showing a man riding a motorcycle minutes before the blast and police are on the lookout for him.
