The Tamil television news channel Puthiya Thalaimurai was on Thursday attacked with crude bombs by unidentified persons in Chennai. No one was injured in the attack.

Although no damages were reported, CCTV footage showed four men on two motorcycles throwing the crude bombs packed in tiffin boxes at the entrance to the office.

The incident comes close on the heels of the channel removing a controversial show about 'Thaali' (Mangalsutra) on Sunday when a fringe outfit, Hindu Munnani, opposed it and staged a protest during which some equipment was damaged and a video journalist allegedly attacked.
