Pulwama: At least 18 policemen were injured in two grenade attacks in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama on Wednesday.
Reportedly, militants hurled a grenade, followed by firing, at security personnel who were on duty near the Degree College in Pulwama town.
A Dy SP was also injured in the attack.
The area was immediately cordoned off and an operation was launched to track down the assailants.

The teenager was removed to a hospital where he succumbed, the officer said.
With Mir’s death, the toll in the ongoing Kashmir unrest has risen to 69 – including two policemen.
