A grenade explosion occurred at the Jammu Bus Stand today. 30 people were injured in the incident. Earlier, 26 people were reportedly injured and shifted to the hospital. The area had been cordoned off by the security personnel who have now reached the site.

As per reports, visuals from the blast also showed damaged vehicles. People have been advised to stay away from the spot. No suspect has been taken into custody as yet. An investigation into the matter is underway.

As per reports, the target of the grenade explosion was a J&K state transport bus. The injured have been sent to the Government Medical College, Jammu.

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.
