FIVE CRPF men were injured in south Kashmir’s Kulgam district when unidentified militants hurled a grenade at Army vehicles on the national highway near Wanpoh. The grenade, however, missed its intended target and exploded on the road, near the CRPF patrol party. The five injured CRPF men were immediately rushed to the hospital.

A senior police officer said the area was cordoned off after the attack. “The militants fled from the spot,’’ he said. Of late, militants have been targeting security forces in south Kashmir, especially the CRPF and the police. Apart from the attacks on security forces, there have also been three incidents of weapon snatching in south Kashmir involving police guards of local politicians.

After the killing of Hizbul commander Burhan Wani in July, the Army and Special Operation Group of J&K Police suspended all operations across Kashmir as they feared mass protests. However, the Army has now started conducting search operations in areas of south Kashmir where militant presence has been reported.
