Militants hurl grenade at CRPF camp in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama; one personnel injured

Militants attacked a Central Reserve Police Force camp (CRPF) with a grenade in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama on Tuesday.

The grenade, however, didn't explode. A CRPF jawan was injured in the cross-firing between the militants and the security forces, according to ANI. The firing began in retaliation after terrorists hurled a grenade. The incident took place at about 1.30 am on Tuesday at the camp of 183 battalion of CRPF in the area.

The injured has been identified as CRPF jawan Moyeen Khan, a police official told PTI.  The area has been cordoned off as other security agencies, including the Army, have joined the operation to track down the militants, the official.

In a similar incident, militants on Monday shot a Territorial Army soldier, who had gone home to grieve the death of his son in a road accident a few days ago, in Kulgam district of Jammu and Kashmir.

Earlier in the month, terrorists had hurled grenade at the CRPF party at Sangrama crossing in Sopore area injuring three security force personnel and one civilian.
