    TIRUNELVELI (TN): Five people, including three children, were killed on the spot in a powerful bomb explosion on Tuesday night in a colony in Idinthakarai coastal village, close to Kundankulam nuclear power plant, police said.

    Those killed included a woman and three children, all aged below five years, they said.

    Two houses were razed under the impact of the blast, they said, adding rescue teams rushed to the pot to clear the debris and extricate people believed trapped under it.

    DIG of police Sumith Saran and superintendent of police Vijendra Bidari also rushed to the spot.

    People of Idinthakarai, the hub of protests against KNPP, backed by People's Movement Against Nuclear Energy, have been agitating for more than two years, demanding its closure.

    Unit-1 had attained criticality on July 13 this year following protests against the project by anti-nuclear activists in areas around the complex, citing safety reasons.

    Police had raided Kunthankuli village near Idinthakarai in 2012 and early this year and seized some country bombs from some huts.

    Police suspect that some people involved in criminal cases from Kunthankuli were staying in the two houses.

    6 killed, 2 injured in bomb blast in village near Kudankulam nuclear plant

    TIRUNELVELI ( Tamil Nadu): Six people were killed and two injured when a country-made bomb exploded tonight in a coastal village near the Kudankulam nuclear power plant.

    A home ministry spokesman said in New Delhi that the country-made bomb went off "accidentally" when some miscreants were making the explosive in their hut at around 1840 hours in Idinagarai Tsunami colony, about 15km from the nuclear power plant.

    Among the dead were a woman and three children who were all aged below five, police said. A senior official of the department of atomic energy said the plant is running fine and is safe.

    Two houses were razed under the impact of the blast, they said, adding rescue teams rushed to the pot to clear the debris and extricate people believed trapped under it.

    Bomb disposal squad and investigation teams rushed to the spot, along with DIG of police Sumith Saran and superintendent of police Vijendra Bidari.

    People of Idinthakarai, the hub of protests against KNPP, backed by People's Movement Against Nuclear Energy, have been agitating for more than two years, demanding its closure.

    Unit-1 had attained criticality on July 13 this year following protests against the project by anti-nuclear activists in areas around the complex, citing safety reasons.

    Bwahahaha. Do you know about the factionism of Ralayaseema in Andhra Pradesh? (south India).

    Bombs like these are hurled on a daily basis. Yet that doesn't challenge India's progress at building
    new N-reactors in that region. If those factionists throw a bomb on the facility we'll run tanks into
    their houses and pull their gonads out.

    This is a very unfortunate incident. On the face of it, this doesnot look like an intentional attack, maybe the bomb got detonated where it was stored/ while trying to make bomb or after kids start playing with it. An intentional attack would have taken place near the nuclear plant. Sad, this happened in my hometown Tirunelveli.
