Srinagar, Mar 29 (UNI) A number of people were injured when militants triggered a powerful Improvised Explosive Device (IED) at Mujagund in north Kashmir district of Baramulla this afternoon.

Official sources said militants detonated an IED on the Srinagar-Bandipora road at 1315 hours when a security force convoy was passing the area.

They said a security force vehicle was damaged in the blast.

The injured persons were admitted to the hospital, they said.

However, a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) spokesman said the blast took place after two CRPF passed the area. There was no damage to any security force vehicles, he added.

Meanwhile, a Hizbul Mujahideen (HM) spokesman claimed seven security jawans were killed after both the vehicles were damaged.

This was the third IED blast in the valley during the past two weeks.

Last week a blast took place on the high security airport road at Sanant Nagar causing injuries to six soldiers and a woman pedestrain.

Another blast took place on the Srinagar airport road causing damage to an electric pole. However, no one was injured in that blast.
