At Least 18 Injured in IOK Blast
Srinagar: Eighteen people were injured on Thursday when a grenade exploded at a bus stop in the city of Jammu, in Indian occupied Kashmir, police said.
“It seems that the grenade was lobbed from outside (the premises) and it rolled under the bus and caused injuries to approximately 18 people,” police official MK Sinha told journalists.
“A grenade was hurled by an unidentified person which exploded under a bus in the main terminal. Four people are critical,” a second police officer told media.
“The bus was about to leave to Pathankot city in Punjab.”
The blast comes amid heightened tensions between India and Pakistan after 40 Indian troops were killed on February 14 in the part of Indian occupied Kashmir, triggering tit-for-tat air strikes by the two countries last week.
