By Fayaz Wani

Srinagar, Aug 1: Militants have shown their presence in Indian administered Kashmir by carrying out four grenade blasts in two days. On Wednesday, militants attacked the residence of village head and lobbed a grenade towards paramilitary soldiers, without causing any loss of life or damage to property.

A police official said militants lobbed a grenade towards a picket manned by CRPF men of 154th bn at Chanapora bridge, some 5 kms from Srinagar, this afternoon.

"The grenade fell short of the target and exploded on the road side, without causing any harm or causality," they said.

They said immediately after the grenade attack, police and CRPF men launched a manhunt to arrest the attackers. However, no arrests were reported.

A police spokesman said militants lobbed a grenade towards the house of village head in North Kashmir.

"The militants lobbed grenade towards house of sarpanch (village head) Mohammad Rustum Dar at Nagri village in North Kashmir last night. The grenade exploded in the compound of the house, damaging glass panes. However, none was hurt in the attack," he said.

This is the 4th grenade attack in the Valley since yesterday. The militants struck twice in Sopore township of north Kashmir last evening by carrying out grenade attacks. Three persons including a policeman were injured in the twin attacks.
