Officials said that unidentified men tossed a grenade towards the CRPF jawans standing outside Jammu and Kashmir Bank at Kadlabal that resulted injuries to two CRPF jawans and two civilians.

Locals, however, said that more than two civilians sustained splinter injuries in the grenade attack.


Police and army reached the spot and started an investigation.

So far no group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
