Jammu and Kashmir: At least 8 injured in grenade attack on paramilitary convoy in Shopian

NEW DELHI: At least one CRPF jawan and seven civilians were injured in a grenade attack on a paramilitary convoy in Jammu and Kashmir’s Shopian district on Tuesday.


The attack comes a day after terrorists stormed into the EDI complexes in the wee hours of Monday and took positions inside one of the buildings.

The operation to flush out militants holed up inside a government building in Pampore area on the Srinagar-Jammu National Highway is underway, even as security forces launched a fresh offensive against the ultras.

Meanwhile, curfew remained in force in interior areas of Srinagar as a precautionary measure to maintain law and order in view of the fourth day of mourning of a minor boy, who was hit by pellets during a protest.

However, normal life remained affected for the 95th consecutive day in the rest of the Valley following killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani in an encounter with security forces on July 8.
