A petrol bomb was hurled at the office of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) (CPI (M)) in Tamil Nadu's Coimbatore, news agency ANI reported.

According to the Coimbatore Police, Friday's attack was carried out by two persons on a motorcycle.

According to media report, though no one was injured in the attack, a vehicle parked nearby was slightly damaged. One of the youth had his face covered using a handkerchief. An attempt was earlier made to attack the general secretary of the party Sitaram Yechury. A special team was formed to investigate the case.

Ramakrishnan also recalled the recent attacks at the party's local offices in Kanyakumari district.

Condemning the attack, TNCC president S. Thirunavukkarasar urged the state government to identify the outfit behind the incident and take appropriate action.

VCK leader Thol. Thirumavalavan said communal forces are trying to gain foothold in the state through violent activities and asked the state government not to be complacent.

"Opposing views should be countered by tolerance and opinions towards constructive politics", he said.
