Grenade attack in Pulwama, CRPF ASI killed, seven injured

Srinagar: Ahead of polling in Pulwama district in south Kashmir, militants today carried out a grenade attack killing a CRPF assistant sub-inspector and wounding four security force personnel and three civilians.

Militants hurled a grenade at a security force party in village Pohu, 35 kms from here, at around 5.30 pm injuring three CRPF jawans, two policemen and three passers-by, police said.

The injured were rushed to a hospital where ASI Shamsher Singh of 183 battalion CRPF succumbed to injuries, they said.

The ultras escaped taking advantage of the panic caused by the blast, police said adding a hunt had been launched to nab them.

No militant outfit had claimed responsibility for the attack so far, police said.

Pulwama is going to polls in the third round of 5-phased Jammu and Kashmir assembly polls on December 9.
