At least one person was killed and 17 wounded on Monday in a grenade blast at a crowded market in Indian Occupied Kashmir’s Srinagar city.
Kashmir has been on a knife-edge since August 5 when the Indian government moved to strip the region of its autonomy, imposed a lock down, cut telecommunications and detained thousands.
Doctors at the main hospital said that the deceased was a resident of northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.—AFP
