A grenade attack injured three Indian police troops, including an officer, in Kashmir. A riot reportedly erupted following the attack.

The incident happened on Thursday morning in the town of Sopore in the western part of India-administrated part of the disputed region.

“Militants” fired from an under-barrel grenade launcher at a group of security personnel, the police said. The grenade injured three people, including an officer from the police station in Dangiwacha, a small town in the same Baramulla district.

“Security forces have cordoned off the area and a search has been launched to nab the attackers,” a police official said.
