Srinagar: At least two jawans and seven civilians injured on Tuesday when terrorists launched a grenade attack at a CRPF patrol team in Shopian district of Jammu and Kashmir.

Among the nine injured, four are women. They have been shifted to a nearby hospital.

Security men are conducting search operations as terrorists escaped after hurling grenades at the envoy.

On the other hand, Indian army has decided to demolish the Entrepreneurship Development Institute (EDI) as the gun battle between the terrorists and the army continued on Tuesday.

The army officials said that around two to three terrorists are still inside the building and the operation to flush out those armed terrorists is still on.

“Operation against the holed up militants has been resumed. Floodlights were used during the night to ensure that the militants were prevented from escaping under the cover of darkness,” a senior CRPF official said.

The CRPF officials stated that Rockets and heavy automatic gunfire were used on Tuesday morning to engage the militants.
