Grenade attack on police post in J&K’s Ramban

Militants lobbed a grenade at a police post in Jammu and Kashmir’s Ramban district early Tuesday. However, there was no loss of life or injury to any police personnel.

The grenade exploded on the roof of the police post.

Police and Army have launched a massive cordon and search operation in the area. An alert has been sounded in the district and a case registered.\

The attack has taken security forces by surprise as there has been no militancy in Ramban in recent years.

“A grenade blast has occurred near the premises of police post Ind, which falls in the jurisdiction of police station Gool,” Additional Director General of Police Mukesh Singh said,

The attack has been claimed by Jammu Kashmir Ghaznavi Force (JKGF), a little known outfit.
