A grenade attack aimed at security forces in Jammu and Kashmir's Sumbal bridge area of Bandipora on Tuesday, 26 October, injured at least six civilians, people familiar with the development said.

The injured civilians were taken to the hospital while the security forces continued the operation at the site of the incident, Hindustan Times reported.


This comes amid a series of civilian killings in Jammu and Kashmir with 11 people dead. On Sunday, a civilian was allegedly killed in cross-firing after militants attacked a battalion of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) in the Union territory's Shopian district, news agency PTI reported citing the police.
