As the day progressed, the number of injured increased to 30. 17-year-old Mohammad Sharik from Haridwar in Uttarakhand has succumbed to his injuries after the Jammu Grenade Blast.

Now, hours after the attack, Jammu and Kashmir Police has arrested the grenade thrower, Yasir Arhaan, who is from Kulgam, South Kashmir. He was reportedly caught while fleeing.

The grenade blast comes on the backdrop of the Pulwama Terror Attack that martyred over 40 soldiers of the CRPF. India had responded to it with airstrikes within Pakistani territory that led to tensions between India and Pakistan. Things have de-escalated since then, however, terrorism remains a serious issue in the state.
