KOCHI: Five Muslim League members were killed in an explosion while they were making crude bombs at Nadapuram near Kerala's Kozhikode.
Country bombs were used in frequent clashes between CPM and Muslim League in the area. After the local body elections last November, clashes between the two parties have intensified. Both parties have units which make bombs.
After Saturday night's incident, the district administration plans to clamp prohibitory orders in the area. "We are discussing the issue with the district collector," said SP of Kozhikode rural police.
Chief minister V S Achuthanandan alleged the opposition was fomenting violence ahead of the Assembly elections in the state.
