Though bombs were also hurled, the injuries were a result of stone-pelting, they said, adding that the injured were admitted to a co-operative hospital at nearby Thalassery.

The CPI(M) alleged that RSS activists were behind the incident.

The ruling party in Kerala has called for a 12-hour hartal in the area tomorrow to protest against the attack.

Additional personnel had been deployed in the area as a precautionary measure, the police said.

Kannur, a politically volatile district in Kerala, has a history of clashes involving CPI(M) and BJP-RSS workers.
