A grenade explosion at a bus stop in Jammu city of the Indian-occupied Kashmir on Thursday injured 18 people according to the police.
“It seems that the grenade was lobbed from outside (the premises) and it rolled under the bus and caused injuries to approximately 18 people,” said police official MK Sinha.
The attack occurred in the midst of rising tensions between Pakistan and India post 14 February Pulwama attack which resulted in the deaths of 40 Indian troops.
“A grenade was hurled by an unidentified person which exploded under a bus in the main terminal. Four people are critical,” another police officer told AFP.
“The bus was about to leave to Pathankot city in Punjab.”
India subsequently blamed Pakistan for the Pulwama attack without presenting any proof of Pakistan’s involvement in the attack. Pakistan has strongly rejected those claims ever since.
