Kashmir terror attack leaves 10 wounded
A suspected terrorist attack, which took place in Indian-controlled Jammu and Kashmir’s Anantnag, is said to have wounded 10 people. One of the wounded was a traffic policeman, the rest of the victims are believed to be civilians.
According to news reports, the suspect intended to throw the grenade inside the deputy commissioner’s office building, but missed his target.
The area was quickly cordoned off by security forces, who have launched an operation to find the culprits. No one has claimed responsibility for the attack.
A similar attack was carried out in September, when Indian security forces were targeted with a grenade.
Tensions in the disputed territory have spiked since India revoked Kashmir’s special status in August. New Delhi has repeatedly accused Pakistan of using terrorism to undermine India’s presence in the region.
