Five paramilitary troopers injured in Kashmir attack

Srinagar, Sep 26 (IANS) Five paramilitary troopers were injured in a militant attack on security forces in a south Kashmir village on Monday, police said.

The grenade missed the target and exploded on the roadside.

Five CRPF men received splinter injuries and have been hospitalised.
