Three security personnel and a civilian were injured in a grenade attack in Srinagar on Friday.

An official said militants lobbed a grenade at the security personnel deployed in the Nawabazar area of the old city in the afternoon. “Two CRPF personnel of the 36 Battalion, one policeman and a civilian sustained splinter injuries in the blast,” the official said. The injured were admitted to nearby hospitals.

The area was cordoned off after the attack and a hunt has been launched to arrest the miscreants.

A militant outfit, The Resistance Force (TRF), purportedly claimed responsibility for the attack. However, the police could not confirm it immediately.
