Eyewitness account of grenade attack
Earlier in the day, Inspector General of Police, Jammu, MK Sinha told media, “It was a grenade explosion; it has caused injuries to approximately 18 people and all were shifted to the hospital”.
“Seems like the grenade has been launched from outside. It possibly had rolled beneath a bus injuring many people”, he had added.
