Twin grenade attacks in Kashmir ahead of India’s Republic Day

There were at least two grenade attacks by suspected pro freedom insurgents in Indian-administered Kashmir ahead of India’s Republic Day, reports said on Monday. 

The disputed region has been turned into a fortress in order for the Indian military and civil administration to celebrate the 72th Republic Day of the country. 

Reports said that the suspected insurgents hurled a grenade on a police post at Yaripora of south Kashmir’s Kulgam district. “However the grenade missed the target and exploded outside the wall of police post. No loss of life injury reported,” a media report noted.

Suspected pro-freedom insurgents also attacked Indian paramilitary Central Reserve Police Force with a grenade in Bijbehara in Anantnag district late on Monday. The grenade was hurled at the CRPF at Goriwan Chowk in which, reports said, a civilian received minor splinter injuries and a car suffered some damage. 

The attacks come despite the Indian government forces sealing most of Kashmir and carrying out random frisking of people and vehicles at multiple locations.
