Kannur (Kerala), June 7: The Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) on Sunday denied it had any role in the crude bomb explosion that killed two party activists and seriously injured two others on Saturday. The party has also denied it was behind the manufacture of crude bombs. K. Shyju, 39, and Sudheesh, 28, were killed in the explosion at Chettakkandy near Kannur on Saturday. It was believed that the explosion took place while “making bombs”. “This has occurred in a place where there is a security cordon by police. The CPI-M has no role in this and it’s the failure of the police force as this is an area that has seen frequent skirmishes between the CPI-M and the RSS,” CPI-M’s Kerala unit secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishn told reporters in Delhi on Sunday. Balakrishn is in the tiol capital to take part in a party meet. However, Kerala Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala told IANS that Balakrishn is simply bluffing. “What does he mean? Do you know the two who died were hardcore CPI-M workers and the condition of the other two is also serious. (IANS)
