One person was killed and at least 35 people were injured on Monday in a grenade attack in Srinagar, officials at the city’s Shri Maharaja Hari Singh Hospital said.
Security forces cordoned off Hari Singh High Street after the grenade attack took place around 1.20 pm, PTI reported. The market was crowded at the time of the attack.
Three security personnel were among those injured, with the condition of two being critical. The deceased individual was identified as 40-year-old Rinku Singh, a resident of Saharanpur in Uttar Pradesh, the police said.
The attack came a week after 19 civilians were injured in a grenade attack in Jammu and Kashmir’s Sopore town on October 28.
