Srinagar: Six persons, including two CRPF
jawans, were on Tuesday injured in a grenade attack by militants on
a bunker in Pulwama district of Kashmir, police said.
Ultras lobbed a grenade at the mobile bunker vehicle of
182 Battalion CRPF in Pulwama town, 32 kms from here,
resulting in injuries to three men, a woman and two CRPF
personnel, Superintendent of Police Pulwama Abdul Razak told

The attack took place when Chief Minister Omar Abdullah
was chairing the district development board meeting for
Pulwama less than a kilometre away, official sources said.

The blast caused panic among the passers as security
forces cordoned off the area, they said, adding normalcy was
restored within 30 minutes.

attack so far.
