A petrol bomb was hurled at the office of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) office in Kerala's Kannur district on Friday. Two unidentified men on a bike hurled the bomb at the office.

The windows of the office were broken during the incident.

No casualties have been reported from the incident so far. Police have started an investigation to identify the men.

The incident came amidst statewide protests against the arrest of members of the Popular Front of India (PFI). The protests turned violent as stones were pelted and incidents of vandalism were reported in various locations.

Local media reported that a petrol bomb was hurled at a vehicle which was carrying newspapers for distribution at Narayanpara in Kannur in the morning.

This is not the first time that the RSS office was attacked by assailants. In July too, bombs were hurled at the office and the RSS had accused CPI(M) workers of carrying out the attack.
