Ganderbal (NVI): Three CRPF personnel were injured in a grenade attack by militants in Central Kashmir’s Ganderbal district today, police officials said.
A police official said that the blast took place inside a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) Camp of 118 Battalion, resulting in the injuries to three troopers. He said they were shifted to Sher-e-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences (SKIMS) Soura.
The camp is located at Tawheed Chowk at Dadharhama area of the district.
According to sources, a grenade was tossed by militants inside the CRPF camp.
Shortly after the incident, security forces rushed to the spot.
Ganderbal is the only district in Kashmir Valley where no encounter between security forces and militants took place this year. However, militants this year carried out an attack in Pandach area of the district that resulted into the death of two Border Security Force (BSF) personnel.
Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP), Ganderbal, Khalil Ahmed Poswal told NVI that they are looking at both aspects, whether grenade was lobbed by militants or it was an accidental blast. “Investigation has been set into motion,” he said.
