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.
