Srinagar: At least 26 people have been injured in a grenade blast that took place at the busy Jammu bus stand on Thursday.
Of the total injured, 19 have been admitted to the Government Medical College (GMC), Jammu. Two persons are said to be critical.
Police have cordoned off the area. This is the third blast around the Jammu bus stand in the past 10 months.
A low-intensity blast had rocked the Jammu bus stand on December 28. A grenade was lobbed at the police station building in the vicinity, police officials had said.
No casualties were reported. On May 24, 2018, three people had suffered injuries in the grenade attack at the bus stand. The injured included two policemen.
The blast comes at a time when Jammu and Kashmir is on high alert due to heightened tensions between India and Pakistan.
