Two people were killed and several security personnel injured after suspected militants lobbed a grenade at a crowded bus stand in south Kashmir’s Tral town on Thursday.
 
A senior Peoples Democratic Party leader and minister whose motorcade was passing through the area escaped unhurt.
 
“Teenage student among two civilians killed,” a police spokesperson said.
 
PDP leader and public works minister Naeem Akhtar was in the area to review development projects and inaugurate other schemes.
 
“I was travelling through the area. I am fine,” Akhtar told the Hindustan Times.
 
Akhtar expressed his sadness and grief at the loss of two lives.
 
Speaking to a television channel, Akhtar added the attack was to subvert his outreach programme and mission of taking governance to the people.
 
A senior police officer said two policemen were injured while a Srinagar-based spokesperson of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) told HT that seven soldiers of the paramilitary force were injured in the attack and were out of danger.
