Three days earlier, terrorists hurled a grenade at the house of People's Democratic Party (PDP) MLA Mushtaq Ahmad Shah at Tral. Fortuately, no injuries were reported because Shah's family members were not in the house.

Security forces reached Shah's house after the attack and launched a search operation.

Militants also hurled a grenade at the residence of a National Conference (NC) leader Mohammad Ashraf Bhat in Tral injuring a CRPF jawan.

In early October, two policemen were injured after a grenade was lobbed towards a check post in the Juhama area of Baramulla district. A joint check post was set up by police and the army for routine area domination. The policemen received minor injuries in the blast and the area was cordoned off for searches.

In September, three civilians including a college student were killed and 30 others including policemen and paramilitary troopers were injured in a grenade attack in Pulwama district. According to News18, the attack took place when senior Jammu and Kashmir minister Naeem Akhtar reached Tral to inaugurate a project. Akhtar escaped unhurt in the attack.
