A grenade attack was lobbed at a CRPF deployment at Badshah Bridge in Srinagar, injuring one jawan.

"A total of six CRPF personals were deployed when the incident took place. The terrorists who were in an auto threw the grenade targeting the rear wheel of the CRPF vehicle. One personnel of 132 Battalion sustained splinter injury on his back and was immediately admitted to a local hospital," an official said.

Earlier in the day, terrorists lobbed a grenade at CRPF 82 Battalion in Fateh Kadal`s Chinkral Mohalla area, injuring three CRPF personnel and one civilian.

The injured are out of danger and their condition is stable.

Earlier the police had claimed that a fourth grenade was hurled by terrorists in Mominabad-Batamaloo area of Srinagar. However, after complete verification, the police confirmed that it was perhaps a tyre blast, not grenade attack by terrorists in the region.

A series of grenade attacks have taken place in the valley in last 10 days.

On May 23, six civilians were injured in the grenade attack at Bijbehara town of Anantnag district. 

Two days later, two policemen and a civilian were injured in a similar attack at a bus stand on Jammu's BC road.
