Srinagar: Three persons were injured on Tuesday in an explosion at the place of yesterday`s gunbattle between security forces and militants at Tral in Kashmir`s Pulwama district in which three ultras and a cop were killed.

"Before the Bomb Disposal Squad could sanitize the (encounter) spot, some people rummaged through the debris leading to a minor explosion," a police spokesman said.

Mohammad Shafi, Khurshid Ahmad and Wasif Ahmad suffered injuries in the explosion, he said adding they were admitted to a hospital.

The people were cautioned through repeated announcements late last night and early this morning not to venture near the encounter site, the spokesman said.

Three Hizbul Mujahideen militants and a policeman were killed and three security force personnel wounded in the gunfight in Tral`s Midura area, 35-km from here, yesterday.
