He said Bhat was taken to a local hospital and doctors referred him to a different hospital. However, he succumbed to injuries on the way.

This is not the first instance where civilians have been injured in a militant attack. In a grenade attack on 21 September, three civilians were killed and 30 injured.

Among the three people who died was a college student, said the Jammu and Kashmir Police.

Police had said that militants hurled a grenade near a bus stand in Tral town of Pulwama district. The injured persons include eight paramilitary troops, four policemen, and some civilians.

Attacks in Pulwama have become common. In August, eight security personnel, including four CRPF men, were killed when militants conducted a suicide attack on a police complex in south Pulwama.

The attack led to a massive gunfight wherein three militants were killed. The militants were believed to be foreign mercenaries.
