Militants lobbed a hand grenade on a CRPF bunker in Lal Chowk of Srinagar city on Friday evening.

The grenade was lobbed at a CRPF bunker at Platinum Post in Lal Chowk around 7 pm, which missed the target.

“It blasted 30 metres away from the bunker. There was no loss or injury in the blast,” said a CRPF spokesman in Srinagar.

The security forces later cordoned the area to trace the attackers. However, sources said militants managed to escape taking advantage of the darkness.
