Srinagar: A jawan was injured on Sunday when grenades were hurled by militants at a polling booth at Tral in J&K's Pulwama district.

The ultras lobbed the grenade at higher secondary school, which has been designated as a polling station, at Noorpora in Tral area of south Kashmir, 35 kms from here, a police officer said.

A CISF jawan on polling duty sustained minor injuries in the attack, he said.

No militant outfit has claimed responsibility for the attack so far.

Pulwama goes to polls on December 9, Tuesday, in the third phase of elections.

The Valley has been riddled by militant attacks threatening to disrupt the ongoing J&K Assembly elections.

Eleven security personnel were killed in four separate attacks across the Kashmir Valley on Friday.

The Army has averred that the militants belonged to Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) and had infiltrated from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).
