At least seven persons were injured after suspected terrorists hurled a grenade in Jammu and Kashmir's Srinagar on Saturday, October 12.
This is the second grenade attack within 10 days.
Terrorists hurled a grenade in Srinagar's Hari Singh High street area, which is a few hundred metres away from the city centre Lal Chowk.
News agency ANI reported that the area has been cordoned off and a search operation is underway.
The Kashmir Zone Police took to Twitter to state: "#Terrorists lobbed a #grenade at #HSH #Street #Srinagar. 05 #civilians injured. All are stated to be #stable. Area under #cordon. #Search in the #area is in progress."
The shops in the Lal Chowk market were closed but a few vendors had set up stalls in the locality.
The attack comes hours after the J&K authorities lifted the communication clampdown in Kashmir, restoring the post-paid mobile phone services from Monday forenoon.
Mobile phone services and internet facilities were snapped in the Kashmir Valley on August 5 following the abrogation of Article 370.
In another similar incident, a grenade attack outside the deputy commissioner's building in KP Road in Jammu and Kashmir's Anantnag district killed around five people. The grenade was reportedly thrown by suspected terrorists.
