Tharoor was weighing himself on a giant scale as part of a ritual called Thulabharam in which a devotee sits on a scale against a mound of offerings like fruit and sweets.

The weighing balance, however, fell down and Tharoor suffered injuries to his head and leg.

According to reports, he has suffered a deep injury on his head leading to eight stitches.

Tharoor, who is Thiruvananthapuram Lok Sabha Congress candidate, is aiming for a hat-trick of win.

As part of Vishu, new year celebration in Kerala, Tharoor had gone to the temple in between the poll campaign.

Tharoor is engaged in a tough three-way electoral battle with former Mizoram Governor Kummanem Rajasekheran of BJP and CPI’s C. Divakaran, a sitting legislator and former state Minister.

In the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, Tharoor scraped through with a margin of around 15,000 votes against BJP’s O. Rajagopal, who is now a MLA.
