Though nobody was injured in the incident, a car parked there was partially damaged, police said. The CPM blamed ‘Hindutva’ activists for the attack and claimed it was a “continuation” of the recent attempt to attack party General Secretary Sitaram Yechury in Delhi. CPM state Secretary G Ramakrishnan strongly condemned the incident and said a four-wheeeler and a window were damaged in the attack. He urged the state government to arrest those behind the incident.

The incident was a continuation of the attempt to manhandle Yechury recently by “intolerant activists,” the party’s Coimbatore District Secretary V Ramamurthy said. 

DMK Working President and Tamil Nadu Opposition Leader M K Stalin, CPI state secretary R Mutharasan and MDMK founder Vaiko also condemned the attack.
