After a grenade attack in Jammu on a bus where around 30 civilians were injured today, the police has been able to track down the accused and arrest him, after the incident which claimed one life.

As per a statement by DGP Dilbag Singh of Jammu and Kashmir, “The person who threw the grenade at the Jammu bus stand earlier today, has been arrested.”

Further, it was reported that “One person injured in grenade explosion at Jammu bus-stand succumbs to injuries,” by news agency ANI.

After security personnel cordoned off the Jammu bus stand area, an eyewitness had said, “I thought it was a tyre burst. It was a big blast. The locals took the injured to the hospital in an ambulance.”

As per records, this blast is the third grenade attack in Jammu’s bus stand area since last May 2018.

This attack comes after India conducted “pre-emptive non-military” air strike across the LoC at the terror camps of Jaish-e-Mohammad, who had earlier carried out the deadly Pulwama attack, wherein more than 40 CRPF soldiers were martyred.
