KANNUR: Crucial details have emerged in the Panoor bomb blast case, which resulted in the death of one CPM worker. Pannur Kaivelikkal native Sherin (31) was killed in the incident. CPM workers V.P.Vineesh (36), Vinodhan (38) and Ashwanth (Eldo, 25) were injured in the blast.

The gang of CPM workers were preparing a country-made bomb on the terrace of a house that was under construction. The property belonged to lottery worker Manoharan. Two bombs were found near this house that was allotted to Manoharan under the LIFE mission. Manoharan's wife has complained to the police alleging that their house has been misused. It remains a mystery why the gang suddenly decided to make country-made bombs.

For some time now, Kannur has cleansed itself from the tag of being a citadel for violence and an illegal bomb-making haven. No such cases were reported in the recent past, so the sudden return to older ways has evoked concern among natives.

Vineesh is the son of a local CPM leader in Pannur. He was seriously injured in the blast and is undergoing treatment at a private hospital in Kozhikode. Both of Sherin’s palms were severed and were found 50m far away from the blast place.

The preliminary information is that a five-member group was involved in making the bomb. It is believed that the rest, who suffered minor injuries, went into hiding. The Forensic Department and the Bomb Squad inspected the spot.
