Officials reported that the terrorists attempted to hurl the grenade towards a bunker vehicle of paramilitary SSB forces. It exploded on the side of a road after hitting the vehicle at Hari Singh High Street in the city centre.

Security personnel cordon off the area and inspect the site of a grenade attack at Hari Singh High Street in Srinagar. The area remains very busy owing to congested business establishments and installations.

Deputy inspector general, CRPF, Kishore Prasad told reporters, “The SSB were the target of the grenade but there were no injuries to the security forces.”

The explosion led to injuries to the passersby who were evacuated to Shri Maharaja Hari Singh (SMHS) hospital.

Police reported that during a search operation, the police have apprehended a local journalist, Adil Farooq Bhat, and recovered a bag with two live grenades. He was earlier arrested in February 2019.
