Watch: IED blast outside Jamia Masjid in Srinagar

An explosion took place outside Srinagar’s Jamia Masjid (grand Mosque) in Nowhatta area of the old city on Thursday, but no loss of life or injury were reported, officials said.

They said the explosion, suspected to be an Improvised Explosive Device (IED), took place around noon.

The government forces deployed in the area fired some shots in the air after the explosion.

Shops and businesses remained closed on the second anniversary of the abrogation of autonomous status and statehood, article 370, an article that empowered the Jammu and Kashmir state’s legislature to define permanent residents of the state and provided special rights and privileges to those permanent residents.
