The elderly man's death in the bomb explosion near Thalassery on June 18 sparked a political controversy in Kerala. Opposition parties, including the Congress and the BJP, have accused the ruling CPM of manufacturing and storing bombs in unoccupied houses and properties throughout the district.

Velayudhan was fatally injured in an explosion while attempting to dismantle a steel bomb. His hands were severed by the blast, and he tragically died before reaching the hospital.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said that there have been multiple instances of bomb explosions in certain areas of the northern district. He assured that the police would intensify their investigations into these incidents.
