Srinagar: Two persons were injured on Wednesday when some militants made an abortive bid to target an army convoy by hurling a grenade in Pattan area of north Kashmir's Baramulla district, officials said.

Militants hurled a grenade at an army convoy passing through Pattan market, 30 km from here, at around 2.00 pm but the explosive missed the intended target and landed inside a shop, the officials said.

They said shopkeeper Ghulam Mohammad Sofi and his friend Abdul Khaliq Bhat sustained minor injuries in the explosion.

Both the injured were shifted to nearby sub-district hospital where their condition was stated to be out of danger, the officials added.

No militant outfit immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.
