Militants hurled a grenade at a patrol party near Nishat Park in the district in north Kashmir on Friday evening, causing splinter injuries to five security forces personnel. The injured personnel were evacuated to a hospital but one of them succumbed. Security officials cordoned off the area and began a search operation.
Political parties across the board condemned the attack.
