Grenade attack at crowded bus stop in Kashmir’s Sopore injures 20

Twenty civilians were injured after terrorists lobbed a hand grenade into a crowd waiting at a bus stop near Hotel Plaza in Kashmir’s Sopore town on Monday.

Of the 20, six people are seriously injured and have been referred to a hospital in Srinagar. The others are undergoing treatment at a local hospital, officials said.

The terrorists were allegedly targeting security forces in the area.

The attack comes a day before a delegation of European Union MPs is visiting the Valley.

Security forces have cordoned off the area and launched an operation to nab the attackers.

No arrests have been made so far, police said.
