Chennai: A petrol bomb was hurled at the house of a Hindu Munnani leader by some miscreants in the wee hours on Monday in neighbouring Tirupur, causing damage to the building, police said.
Around 3 am on Sunday, when K Mahesh, divisional president of Hindu Munnani residing on Brahmanar Street in Sathuvachari was sleeping with his family, he heard a noise similar to stones being pelted. When he came out from his bedroom, he found petrol filled plastic packets with cotton threads in his house, said police sources quoting Mahesh.
Protesting the attack, the outfit has called for a bandh in Tirupur on Tuesday. The Hindu Munnani along with Tirupur Industrial Protection Committee, of which Shanugham is a member, appealed to the traders and establishments to support to shutdown.
The attack comes a day after a similar incident on the house of a Hindu Munnani leader in Vellore district. Three unexploded crude petrol bombs were reportedly found at a divisional functionary's house in Vellore on Sunday.
