Taking cognizance of the grenade blast, Minister of State for Defence Subhash Bhamre said that forces have been given a free hand to take necessary steps.

"All of them have been shifted to a hospital. I went to the spot of the explosion and saw about a dozen people were badly injured". He added that there were no specific alerts from intelligence agencies prior to the attack. IGP Jammu Manish Kumar Sinha said that the police are following leads.

"General inputs are always there and the deployments have been made".

"Obviously the intention is always to disturb the communal harmony and peace".

The main bus stand had also been hit by a similar blast in December 2018, but luckily, the grenade had exploded in the air and not cause much damage or any casualty as the incident occurred around midnight, officials had said.
