Party Members Behind Bomb Production; Local Resident, a Young Woman, Comes Forward with Revelation about Bomb Blast

Kannur: The party members are behind the bomb making, they were silent because of fear. After the Eranjoli bomb blast, a local woman revealed. Seena, a neighbor of Velayudhan, who died in yesterday’s bomb blast, said that bomb-making is going on regularly in the area and bombs have been recovered from fields several times. She told the media that no one is silent because they are afraid and they speak openly because of intolerance.

“The party members have taken away the bomb many times before. All the empty houses are their base. Many are afraid to keep quiet. If they talk, they will bomb their houses. And will not be allowed to live. We are ordinary people. We have to live. A normal person died yesterday. Live without fear. Our children should be able to play and walk through the fields”- Seena told the media.

Yesterday afternoon, the blast took place in a house near the village panchayat office and the Eranjoli CPM branch committee office. Velayudhan, who had come to collect coconuts in the field, was killed in a steel bomb blast. The blast happened when he was trying to open a steel container he got while picking coconuts. The police have intensified the investigation into the incident. Both the Congress and the BJP had alleged that the bomb was made with the knowledge of the CPM.
