A lit kerosene filled bottle was hured at the house of a local Shiv Sena leader at Papanaickenpalayam in the city early today, but none of the inmates were hurt, police said.
The bottle fell on the asbestos sheet-roof and burnt a cloth. The inmates were sleeping inside when the incident occurred around 4 AM, police said.
The Shiva sena leader Muthukumar suspected this to be the handiwork of a VHP local secretary Subhash as both had previous enmity over installation of a Ganesha idol during Vinayaga Chathurthi procession.
Police declared that four persons are being questioned.
