New Delhi:

At least 19 civilians were injured on Monday when terrorists lobbed a grenade at a bus stand in Jammu and Kashmir's Sopore town. Of the six, one person is seriously injured and has been referred to a hospital in Srinagar. The others are undergoing treatment at a local hospital, officials said.

Security forces have cordoned off the area and launched an operation to nab the attackers.

No arrests have been made so far, police said.

"#Terrorists lobbed a #grenade on #civilians at #BusStand #Sopore. 6 #civilians sustained #injuries. Information is preliminary in nature," Kashmir Police said on Twitter.

The incident comes just days after, terrorists hurled a grenade at a CRPF team, injuring six personnel, in the Karan Nagar area of Srinagar on Saturday.

The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) team was manning a checkpoint when the grenade attack took place.

Six personnel were injured, they said. The grenade exploded with a bang causing panic in the area, police sources said.

The security forces fired some shots in the air in retaliation, officials said.
