Three police personnel, including an SHO, were injured in a grenade attack by suspected militants at a bus stand in Jammu tonight, while a similar attack took place at a CRPF camp in Srinagar in which no one was injured, police officials said. There was a grenade attack in the bus stand area tonight (by suspected militants).
The grenade was thrown at a police vehicle, Jammu Senior Superintendent of Police Vivek Gupta told PTI. He said three police personnel were injured in the attack. Two of them have been hospitalised, while the SHO received minor injuries, Gupta said. According to eyewitnesses, they were waiting for their bus to leave for New Delhi when a sudden blast took place and they ran for cover.
