"Miscreants hurled bombs targeting my car. It was a miraculous escape as the bomb did not hit the vehicle. They were people who have the backing of Left parties," Maji said.

However, four persons received splinter injuries, while one of them was admitted to hospital, police said.

Police said they later conducted a raid in the area and seized six swords, ten live bombs and two bags of bomb-making ingredients, while arresting one miscreant in this connection.

The incident took place late on Saturday night when Maji was returning from a party programme in the area.
