Srinagar: Two people were injured after terrorists hurled a grenade at a CRPF party at Srinagar's Kawdara area in Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday. The security forces have cordoned off the area and a search operation has been launched to find the attackers. This is the first terrorist attack in Srinagar in 2020. Police officials, quoted by news agency PTI, said that some vehicles were also damaged in the attack saying that vehicles were hit by the sharpnels of the grenade. 'A grenade was hurled by terrorists to target CRPF personnel posted in Kawdara locality of the interior area of the city in the afternoon,' a police official - quoted by PTI - said. The attack comes hours after the security forces arrested Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist Nisar Ahmed Dar from Srinagar and discovered huge cache of weapons in the city. The security forces arrested Dar from the Shri Maharaja Hari Singh Hospital in Srinagar. According to reports, he was listed as a categorised terrorist and has eight FIRs against him. 'Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorist Nisar Dar arrested by Jammu and Kashmir Police and Security Forces. He had escaped from an encounter in Kullan Ganderbal in which one Pakistani terrorist of proscribed terror outfit was killed. This dreaded terrorist was wanted in many terror crimes,' said Jammu and Kashmir Police officer Imtiyaz Hussai in a tweet. Dar, who worked for Lashkar's top terrorist active in North Kashmir Salim Parray, had joined the terrorist organisation in 2018. Recently, a picture of Dar flaunting an AK-47 had went viral on social media.
