At least 16 people, including four policemen, were injured in a grenade attack in Jammu and Kashmir’s Shopian district on Monday.
Militants hurled a grenade at a police party stationed in Batapora Chowk in Shopian town, resulting in injuries to 12 civilians and four cops.
“Around 12 civilians are reportedly injured in this explosion. A young girl has received critical injuries in this explosion while four policemen also sustained injuries in this incident,” a police official said.
“The injured have been shifted to nearby hospital for medical treatment. The area has been cordoned off for searches,” the official added.
