Two persons killed in bomb blasts in Jammu and Kashmir

A day ahead of Vice President Hamid Ansari''s visit to Kashmir, a former militant of the Hizb-ul-Mujahideen (HM) was killed while two of his accomplices were injured when an improvised explosive device (IED) they had allegedly fabricated exploded in the Lal Bazaar area of capital Srinagar on June 19, Daily Excelsior reported. Firdous Ali Dar, a resident of the nearby Alasteng area, was blown up when the IED he had allegedly put together went off at a house at Bhagati Shoora in Lal Bazaar area. The house owner, Riyaz Ahmad Bhat, and another former HM militant, Ghulam Mohammad Ganaie, were injured in the blast. Three grenades, one IED, 100 rounds of AK 47, one mobile phone and some burnt Indian currency notes were recovered from the spot. The Police also recovered large quantity of crackers from the incident site. Official sources said Dar and Ganaie, who were considered to be experts in making of explosives during their active time in subversive activities, might have been persuaded by militants back to militancy. After surrendering, the deceased militant had reportedly taken up a job as an electrician in the Kashmir University, where Vice President Hamid Ansari is scheduled to attend the 17th Convocation of the varsity. 

In another incident in Srinagar, a civilian was killed and three others were wounded when unidentified militants lobbed a grenade at the crowded Dalgate area near the tourist hub of Dal Lake at around 9 pm, official sources said. It was not clear as to what the target of the militants was as a tourist bus, a Police van and paramilitary personnel patrolling the area were present when the explosion took place, official sources said. No militant outfit has claimed responsibility for the attack so far. 

Elsewhere in the State, the Army and Police on June 19 recovered explosive devices and ammunition including eight IEDs during a search operation at village Folka under the jurisdiction of Rajouri Police Station in Rajouri District. The seizure include eight powerful IEDs with four time devices, 3.5 kg explosive, 10 detonators, two radio sets, one UBGL, one telephone, 90 AK rounds and six magazines.
