Srinagar, Nov 18 (KNS): Three persons were killed and several others injured in a grenade attack on a religious congregation here on Sunday, police said.
The grenade was lobbed by bike-borne persons at a religious congregation of 'Nirankaris' which was being held at Adhiwala village here, according to eyewitness accounts.
"A grenade has been lobbed and 5-10 persons have been injured in the incident," a senior Punjab police official, who visited the incident spot, told reporters.
Three persons were killed in the incident, the official said.
Punjab was on alert following an input claiming that a group of six to seven JeM militants were reportedly in the state, possibly in Ferozepur area.
The state was put on alert after four persons snatched a SUV from its driver at gunpoint near Madhopur in Pathankot district last week. (KNS)
