Recently, terrorists had hurled a grenade at a CRPF camp of 180 battalion in Pulwama's Tral in Jammu and Kashmir which rendered at least nine security personnel injured. Militants had opened fire and lobbed a grenade from among the crowd while the security personnel were busy with their law and order duties.

Earlier last month, two bike-borne terrorists attacked a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel and snatched his rifle in Jammu and Kashmir's Anantnag district only. The terrorists attacked the CRPF personnel of B Coy 46 Battalion with a stone near Sadora Railway Station and fled the spot thereafter.
