SRI NAGAR (Web Desk) – One person died and at least 34 were injured on Monday in a grenade blast in Indian-occupied Kashmir’s main city of Srinagar, in the bloodiest incident since New Delhi stripped the region of special status on Aug. 5.
The incident took place at Maulana Azad Road in the city.
The injured, including three Indian paramilitary police, have been admitted to one of three hospitals after the blast in the centre of the city, said the officials, who declined to be named. One person is in a critical condition, they said.
Earlier VK Birdi, one of Srinagar’s top police officials, said in a statement one person had died and at least 14 were injured.
India shut down the internet and arrested thousands in a historic crackdown.
This is the second grenade blast in Srinagar in 15 days.
