Grenade Attack in Kashmir Injures many

Saturday 5 October 2019

SRINAGAR, India (Reuters) — A grenade attack on Saturday in Kashmir’s southern city of Anantnag injured 10 people, including a traffic policeman and a journalist, police said on Twitter, blaming “terrorists”.

“Terrorists lobbed grenade in Anantnag,” police in Kashmir said on Twitter. “Area under cordon. Searches are going on.” Another account from police said only “minor injuries” had been reported.

The blast took place near a government office, a police official told Reuters on condition of anonymity, because he was not authorized to speak to media. If confirmed, that would appear to mark the first attack near a government office since India revoked Jammu and Kashmir special statusl.
