L K Advani escapes bomb attack in Tamil Nadu

Senior BJP leader L K Advani, who is on Jan Chetna Yatra, escaped an alleged attempt on his life in Madurai on Friday morning. A crude pipe bomb planted under a bridge at Alampatti near Thirumangalam, about 25 kilometres from Madurai in Tamil Nadu, was detected after a tip off by a villager and defused.

Police said the six feet long pipe hidden under a low level bridge across a stream in Alampatti was made of poly vinyl chloride (PVC). It was stuffed with explosives and connected to a wire linked to battery kept about half-a-kilometer away near a palm tree in a deserted place.

Even as a bomb detection and disposal squad (BDDS) rushed to the spot, Advani was briefed about the development and his travel route to Srivilliputur was changed.
