Srinagar : Three paramilitary Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) troopers were injured when militants hurled a grenade at them in Jehangir Chowk in this Jammu and Kashmir summer capital Saturday, police said.
“The grenade exploded, injuring three CRPF jawans (troopers). The injured were immediately taken to a hospital for treatment,” a senior police officer said.
The explosion site is close to the heavily guarded civil secretariat building that houses the offices of the state chief minister, ministers and senior bureaucrats.
