  • MLA Noorabad’s house attacked with Grenade

The suspected attacker behind the Jammu grenade blast is "a minor with no police records", according to the police's special counter-insurgency cell in Kashmir Valley. The boy is learnt to have also told the police that he concealed the grenade under dry rice in his tiffin box. In May 2018, three policemen and a civilian were wounded in a similar grenade attack on the bus stand.

The police blamed the attack on Hizb-ul-Mujahideen outfit and said that its cadre who carried it out has been arrested.

However, it is unclear if there were people inside the bus.

Soon after the incident, police rushed to the spot and cordoned off the area.

MK Sinha, Inspector General Police, Jammu, said that the suspect was tasked by militant outfit Hizbul Mujahideen to carry out the bomb attack in Jammu, which was the third such incident since May previous year. He succumbed to splinter injuries in the chest, the officials said.

An eye witness has reportedly stated that the locals initially thought it was a tire burst. "He revealed that he was tasked to carry out the attack by a Farooq Bhat alias Umer, the district commander of Hizbul Mujahideen in Kulgam".




This is the third grenade blast in the vicinity in the past 10 months.

The injured were taken to a hospital, including at least five who were in critical condition.

A senior police officer who interrogated the student said the accused kept the grenade in his lunch box and concealed it under dry rice.
