Kashmir: 2 more strikes ahead of PM's visit

Mukhtar Ahmad in Srinagar | May 22, 2006 17:26 IST

At least 15 people, including seven policemen, were injured in separate grenade attacks that militants carried out in Rainwari and Babarbar Shah localities of the city.

The attacks come two days ahead of Prime Minister Manmohan's visit to Srinagar for the second roundtable conference to find a solution to the Kashmir issue.

Five policemen and seven civilians received splinter injuries as militants lobbed a grenade at security personnel posted at the Kathidarwaza Chowk in Rainawari area in the afternoon, official sources said.

Militant outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad has claimed responsibility for the attack.

In another strike, ultras hurled a grenade on a police party at Baba Dawood Khakhi bridge near Babarbar Shah in downtown Srinagar wounding two policemen and a civilian.

The grenade was hurled at 1535 hours and the militants fled the scene taking advantage of the panic that followed the explosion.

The injured have been admitted to hospital.

No militant outfit has claimed responsibility for the second attack.
