Crude bombs hurled at Tamil TV channel's office

March 12, 2015 10:18 IST

Unidentified persons on Thursday hurled crude bombs at the office of a popular Tamil TV channel in Chennai, police said. No one was injured in the attack.

The incident happened in the early hours when four motorcycle-borne youths hurled two crude bombs packed in tiffin boxes, police said.

No one has been detained in this connection and police were examining various clues.

 Journalists in the Puthiya Thalaimurai channel said nobody was injured in the incident and that no major damage to property was reported. They said the incident had been caught on CCTV camera.

The incident comes close on the heels of the channel removing a controversial show about 'Thaali' (Mangalsutra) on Sunday when a fringe outfit, Hindu Munnani, opposed it and staged a protest during which some equipment was damaged and a video journalist allegedly attacked.
