28 students injured in an explosion in Kashmir tuition centre 

Srinagar: Twenty-eight students were injured on Wednesday in a mysterious explosion inside a tuition centre in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district, triggering clashes between civilians and security personnel.

Doctors at Pulwama District hospital said they received 17 students with injuries and three among these with serious wounds were referred to Srinagar for specialized treatment.

Eleven other students were taken to a sub-district hospital in Pampore town – and again three of them were shifted to Srinagar.

The tuition-cum-coaching centre was being run in a private school called ‘Falai-e-Millat’ public school in Narbal village near Kakapora town.

All educational institutions are closed in the Kashmir Valley these days due to winter recess.

“The exact facts as to what caused the explosion are being ascertained.”

An earlier unconfirmed report said the explosion took place when one of the students was fiddling with a grenade he was carrying.

Meanwhile, clashes broke out between security forces and civilian protesters as news about the explosion spread in Narbal village.
