One Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawan sustained injuries when suspected militants detonated a low-intensity improvised explosive device ( IED) in south Kashmir’s Pulwama on Sunday morning.
An official said the explosives were triggered minutes after a convoy of the paramilitary CRPF passed through the Gongoo area.
“Militants had planted the low-intensity IED under a tree near Peaks Automobiles in Gongoo area of the district. The explosion followed by firing created panic in the area. A CRPF man sustained injuries in his hand,” an official said.
Reinforcements were rushed to the area after the explosion to apprehend the attackers.
