Three troopers and two civilians were injured on Wednesday in a grenade explosion in Jammu and Kashmir’s Anantnag district, police said.
“Militants hurled a grenade at a posse of CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force) troopers at K.P. Road. Two civilians and three troopers were injured in this grenade explosion,” a police officer told. “The target appears to be the road opening party (ROP) of the CRPF,” he added.
The injured were shifted to a hospital and the area has been cordoned-off for searches. No guerrilla group has so far owned responsibility for the attack.
