The National - News - - NEWS | WORLD -

One per­son died and at least 34 were wounded yes­ter­day in a grenade at­tack in In­di­anad­min­is­tered Kash­mir’s main city of Sri­na­gar. It was the blood­i­est in­ci­dent since New Delhi stripped the re­gion of its long-held au­ton­omy and state­hood on Au­gust 5. The wounded, in­clud­ing three In­dian para­mil­i­tary po­lice, were ad­mit­ted to hos­pi­tal af­ter the blast on Hari Singh High Street in the cen­tre of the city, In­dian of­fi­cials said. The Mus­lim-ma­jor­ity Kash­mir val­ley claimed by both In­dia and Pak­istan has been in tur­moil since Prime Min­is­ter Narendra Modi’s gov­ern­ment re­voked its spe­cial sta­tus. In­dia also shut down the in­ter­net and ar­rested thou­sands in a crack­down it said was aimed at pre­vent­ing un­rest.
