The injured has been identified as Imtiyaz Ahmad Ahanger – brother of the tower’s owner – and a resident of the Gadood Bagh area of Habakadal locality in Srinagar city.

Lesser-known guerrilla outfit ‘Lashkar-e-Islam’ had claimed responsibility for the attack and issued threats to service providers to wind up their operations in Kashmir.
