Two persons including a Central Reserve Police Force trooper were injured in a powerful grenade explosion in the Sopore township of north Kashmir's Baramulla district, causing panic in the area.
"The militants lobbied a grenade at CRPF patrol near Sopore bus stand injuring two. They were immediately rushed to the hospital,” a police officer said.
“The grenade missed the intended target and exploded on the road,” added Superintendent of Police Imtiyaz Hussain.
The area has been cordoned off and a hunt has been launched to nab the militants, they said. No militant outfit has so far claimed responsibility for the attack.
