Written by: Staff

Villuppuram, June 6 (UNI) Seven people, including a four year-old boy and a nine-year-old girl, were injured in a bomb attack at Veedur village in this district of Tamil Nadu late last night.

Police sources said today that the bomb was hurled by one, Elumalai (35), after he was scolded by the local people for having relations with a married woman.

After the bomb attack, Elumalai was severely beaten up by the locals and admitted to the Villuppuam Government Hospital, where the seven injured were also being treated.

Elumalai, hailing from Karasoor in neighbouring Pondicherry, was having illicit relations with one Chitra, who was married to a person in Karasoor.

When Chitra came to her native place of Veedur village a couple of days back to meet her parents, Elumalai too, accompanied her and was clandestinely staying with her in the house.

As the illicit relations came to light, the local panchayat President chided him and asked him to refrain from such acts.

An enraged Elumalai warned the Panchayat President of dire consequences and left the place. He manufactured a country-made bomb on his own and returned around 0030 hrs late last night.

The locals gathered and scolded him for visiting the village again. In a fit of rage, Elumalai, hurled the bomb among the crowd, resulting in injuries to seven people.

Vikravandi Police have registered a case and investigating.
