A country-made bomb was hurled at a transgender’s house at Kakayanthoppu near Ariyankuppam here on Thursday night.
However, the bomb, which exploded, neither damaged the house nor caused injury to its inmates. Police suspect that a motorcycle-borne gang would have hurled the bomb on Raji alias Rajalaksmi’s house and escaped in the cover of darkness.
Police have registered a case in this connection against one Eli alias Udaya and his associate, who is said to have approached Raji a few days ago, for some favours. Raji had lodged a complaint with the police.
