Five persons including two civilians were injured when suspected militants hurled a grenade towards a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) camp in north Kashmir’s Sopore on Sunday morning. Police sources say that suspected militants lobbed a grenade towards the State Bank of India (SBI) building that houses a camp of CRPF in the main town. The grenade missed its intended target and exploded on the road adjacent to the camp resulting in injuries to five persons – including two civilians, two policemen and a CRPF man.
The injured civilians were rushed to Sub District Hospital Sopore, where doctors termed their condition as stable. Soon after the grenade attack, police and paramilitary forces launched a search operation to nab the militants responsible for the grenade attack.
