The militants targeted the police party but missed, injuring civilians instead. They were rushed to the hospital soon after.
The area has been cordoned off and a manhunt was launched for the militants responsible for the attack.
It may be mentioned that yesterday six Chinese grenades were recovered on the busy Parimpira-Panthachowk axis of National Highway 44. The grenades were planted by terrorists in a sandbag.
A similar attack was reported last week as well at Chanapora area in Srinagar in which three persons including two women were left injured.
