Terrorists hurled a grenade in Hari Singh High Street market area -- a few hundred metres from the city centre Lal Chowk -- this afternoon, a police official said.

The grenade exploded on a roadside in the market, injuring seven people, he said, adding that the wounded were rushed to a hospital in Srinagar.
