Jammu: The car blast in south Kashmir`s
Anantnag district could have taken a heavy toll if a truck
parked near the spot had not absorbed the impact of explosion,
Minister of State for Home Nasir Aslam Wani said on Friday.
"Investigation is going on. It is unfortunate incident. I
had visited the place along with IG Kashmir and assessed the
situation," Wani told reporters on the sidelines of 2nd Jammu

otherwise there was apprehension of loss of more human lives.
One person was killed and more than 20, including three
CRPF jawans, were injured yesterday when an explosive-laden car blew up in Bijbehara town of Anantnag district.
"It was a powerful and dangerous blast. We thank god that
