Police personnel inspecting the site of bast in Jammu

As many as 28 people have been reported injured in the blast that is being described as the third grenade attack in the bus stand area of the city since May previous year. The deceased has been identified as 17-year-old Mohammad Sharik, a resident of Haridwar, Uttarakhand, IGP Jammu tweeted.

Police said Sajjad Bhat, a Kashmiri Indian national from the Hizbul Mujahideen militant group, carried out Thursday's attack.

Policemen and onlookers stand at the site of a grenade blast in Jammu March 7, 2019.

Following the blast, the area has been cordoned off and sniffer dogs were brought in to scan the site. The bus stand is in the heart of Jammu city.

The injured were shifted to a government hospital. The Jammu and Kashmir Police said they had arrested the person who threw a grenade hours after the incident occurred on Thursday. Meanwhile, the condition of four injured remains to be critical.

Shariq, who died in the blast, had gone to Jammu a day ago to learn tailoring work from a relative, his family members and police said.

As per latest reports, one injured person has succumbed to injuries.

The teen came to Jammu in a private vehicle, the police sources said, adding they are trying to track the driver. He was caught by sub-divisional officer of Nagrota police in the outskirts of Jammu, following inputs from Jammu police.

"Obviously the intention is always to disturb the communal harmony and peace".

A low-intensity blast had rocked the Jammu bus stand on December 28.

The first leads in the blast case suggest Bhat came in a private vehicle from the Valley on Wednesday evening and took the Srinagar-Jammu highway, with just one-way traffic from Jammu to Srinagar allowed due to landslides. No one was injured in that attack.
