Srinagar, Feb 26 (UNI) Two soldiers and a driver were injured in a car bomb blast at Bemina near a hospital this morning, a defence ministry spokesman said.

He said a Road Opening Party (ROP) noticed a man parking a white maruti car on the main road at Bemina, near a hospitel on the Srinagar-Baramulla road this morning when a army convoy was passing the area.

He said the man started running when asked by the security forces to remove the vehicle. But before he could be caught, there was a blast in the car.

A civil vehicle carrying army jawans from Srinagar to Baramulla was damaged in the blast resulting in injuries to two soliders and a driver.

The injured were admitted to army base hospital, he said.

It was learnt that a stolen car with fake registeration number was used in the blast by militants.

Militants caused more than a dozen car bomb blasts in Srinagar and other parts of the valley targetting security forces and other top officials.

About 20 people, mostly security personnel, were killed in these blasts.

The last car bomb blast was near the corporate headquarter of Jammu and Kashmir bank limited near Tourist Reception Centre (TRC) in which four people were killed and more than 60 injured last year.
