SRINAGAR: One CRPF jawan was martyred and another injured on Tuesday when a terrorist hurled a grenade at security forces in south Kashmir’s Anantnag district, officials said.
Head Constable Shiv Lal Neetam was martyred in the incident in Bijbehara on Tuesday evening.
At about 5:50 pm, a man threw a grenade at a CRPF patrolling party at Goriwan Chowk in the area and fled, the officials said.

While it was earlier reported that the jawans received splinter injuries, officials later said the grenade did not explode.
The terrorists then fired upon the forces, injuring two CRPF personnel who were rushed to a hospital where Neetam was declared brought dead, they said.
The official added that a bomb disposal squad was rushed to the spot to diffuse the grenade.
