A grenade was hurled by militants at a security forces party at the main market in Bandipora district, 55 km from Srinagar [Images], around 9.30 am, the sources said.
The grenade fell short of the target and exploded near the roadside without causing any causality or damage, they said.
The area was immediately cordoned off by police with the help of security forces and a hunt has been launched to nab the militants, they added.
