A country-made bomb was thrown at the residence of one of the members of the SDPI political offshoot in Kerala on Sunday as a result of widespread violence allegedly perpetrated by PFI activists two days ago.

According to Panur police, no one was injured in the attack and a case has been filed under the Explosives Act.
