Srinagar, Oct 12: A grenade was lobbed by unknown militants at the Hari Singh High street area of Srinagar in Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday which left seven people injured.

Ahead of the attack, the shops were shut in the area. However, some roadside vendors were out, according to the eyewitnesses.

Investigations are underway to find out who was behind the attack, said police. The attack comes after the Jammu and Kashmir government on Saturday announced that all post-paid mobile phones in Kashmir would be restored from Monday.

The phones and the Internet had been snapped on the night of August 4, just ahead of the major decision of scrapping Article 370 of the Indian Constitution, that granted special status to J&K.

While mobile phones will start working, internet services will continue to be stopped in the valley.
