Mehbooba escapes militant attack

January 24, 2005 18:14 IST

The ruling Peoples Democratic Party President, Mehbooba Mufti, escaped a bid on her life on Monday, official sources said.

A grenade hurled by militants missed her motorcade, the sources said. However, one person was injured when it exploded, they added.

Mehbooba was campaigning on the outskirts of Srinagar for the upcoming civic elections. She said she had heard an explosion, but was not sure if it was a grenade attack or a firecracker being burst as part of Eid celebrations.

The PDP president continued her canvassing in the city in spite of the attack, the sources added.
