Two army troopers were killed and six others wounded in an explosion that occurred inside a passing vehicle that was part of a convoy in north Kashmir's Baramulla district.

Defence spokesman, Lieutenant Colonel JS Brar said the 'facts about the mysterious explosion are

being investigated'. He said it was 'premature to suggest whether or not it was hurled from outside'.

He said two army soldiers were killed on the spot and six others who were injured in the explosion were evacuated to hospital for treatment.
