Defence spokesman Colonel Rajesh Kalia said that terrorists hurled a hand-grenade on the convoy moving from Baramulla towards Srinagar, which missed the last vehicle and resulted in injuries to the six civilians.

“The injured have been shifted to District Hospital, Baramulla for treatment. The area has been cordoned off and search operation is in progress,” he said.

A police official said that “all injured are stable.”
