On Jan 22, one innocent Kashmiri was injured in a grenade attack by terrorists in Srinagar. The grenade was lobbed by terrorists in Eidgah area which caused splinter injury to Ajaz Ahmed Deva, S/o Abdul Rasheed Deva aged 32 years, a resident of Sangam, Srinagar. KRF condemns the attack and violence created through these nefarious acts subjected to cause psychosis in general public.

This came a day after the union territory witnessed at least three back-to-back bomb explosions, hurting seven people. The blasts in the transport yard of Narwal were triggered by suspected terrorists at a time when security agencies in the region are on high alert amid the ongoing Bharat Jodo Yatra of the Congress and the upcoming Republic Day celebrations.

According to an official, the first blast occurred around 10.45 am, followed by another explosion, an official said, adding that the whole area was cordoned off and a search operation was underway.

Jaswinder Singh, an eyewitness, said the first blast occurred in a vehicle that was sent to a workshop for repairs. Fifteen minutes later, another explosion nearby littered the area with damaged parts and garbage, said Singh, chief of the Motor Spare Parts Association. Five people were injured in the first blast and two more in the second, he added.
