Srinagar: A day after multiple terror strikes against security personnel in Kashmir, suspected militants on Wednesday carried out another grenade attack in a busy market place in Anantnag apparently targeting a police vehicle, leaving five civilians injured.

Unidentified militants hurled a grenade at Goriwan market in Bijbehara town, 45 kms from here, on Srinagar-Jammu national highway, around 1340 hrs, a police spokesman said. He said the grenade exploded outside a shop resulting in injuries to five civilians.

Official sources said a passing police vehicle was apparently the target of the attack but the grenade missed the vehicle. The grenade attack comes a day after a series of similar attacks targeting security forces were carried out in Srinagar and south Kashmir`s Shopian district.
