According to a source, this attack followed an attack on a CPI (M) event in which Kodiyeri Balakrishnan took part in. 

Country made bombs were reportedly hurled at the crowd, following which a few people were injured.

"The CPI (M) workers are behind the attack. It was a mass attack. We are yet to arrest the accused. There was a programme in which CPI (M) state secretary was speaking on Tuesday. RSS workers hurled bombs at the function. It was in retaliation that the RSS office was attacked," a police officer said.
