A bomb attack on the house of a BJP parliamentarian in Kerala just a few hours after a similar attack on the house of a Left party Legislator was reported to the police.

No injury has been reported yet as the family of BJP parliamentarian V Muraleedharan were asleep at their ancestral house at Thalassery in Kannur district at the time of attack.

Mr Muraleedharan alleged Communist Party of India (Marxist) or CPM to be ones behind the attack.

The attack on the BJP leader's house came hours after another crude bomb was thrown at the house of CPM legislator AN Shamseer in the same town at 10 pm. The CPM leader alleged the BJP's ideological mentor Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh or RSS was responsible for the attack.

Twenty people have been detained in connection with the attacks, the police said.

There has been a tension over the entry of women to the Sabarimala temple in the region which has been opposed by the BJP and Congress as well.

Violence had broken out across Kerala, on Wednesday, when two women entered the temple and walked into history.

The police have filed 801 cases related to the violence that broke out after various Hindu groups called for a state-wide shutdown of shops and other establishments on Wednesday to protest against the entry of the women.
