BJP has alleged that the CPI-M was behind the attack. One of their partymen was also injured in the attack after which the BJP has called for a shut down in Payyanur today.
Rejecting the BJP's allegation, the CPI-M workers said that BJP workers threw three country-made bombs at their meeting in Payannur on Tuesday evening.
Police said a few houses of workers belonging to both parties were attacked. Some persons have been taken into custody in connection with the incidents. The situation is under control, police told news agency PTI.
Kannur district is infamous for political violence between the BJP and CPM, with a history running over three decades.
The violence continued even after political leaders in Kannur at an all-party meeting decided to end political violence to ensure peace in the area.
