SRINAGAR: Suspected militants on Wednesday exploded a grenade in a crowded market place in Anantnag injuring five civilians in the fifth attack in two days even as police arrested two terrorists of Pakistan-based LeT from Sopore.

Unidentified militants hurled a grenade at Goriwan market in Bijbehara town, 45 kms from here, on Srinagar-Jammu national highway, around 1340 hrs, a police spokesman said. He said the grenade exploded outside a shop resulting in injuries to five civilians. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack. A passing police vehicle was apparently the target of the attack but the grenade missed the vehicle, official sources said. Police assisted by paramilitary forces immediately cordoned off the spot but no one has been arrested so far, the sources said.(PTI)
