Press Trust of India  |  Coimbatore 

A petrol bomb was hurled at the house of a pro-Hindu outfit's functionary at Mettupalayam near here in the early hours of today, partially damaging a car and two-wheeler parked in the porch, police said.

Dhanpal of Hindu Munnani, working as a manager in a petrol bunk, noticed the burnt vehicles when he returned home from duty in the morning, they said.

On receipt of information, police visited the spot and recovered a metal can containing petrol and wicks.

A special team has been formed to nab the miscreants, police said.

A month ago, unidentified persons hurled a petrol bomb at the house of BJP district president C R Nandakumar in the city.
