“We have traced the blast’s location and its impact was also seen in a nearby village. In the morning at 6:30am we discovered a live grenade here”, he added.

“The terrorist who came here to carry out the attack might have escaped after seeing security forces deployment and thrown the grenade here”, he claimed.

“Our investigation is still going on we will be able to give you further details only after that”, he further said.

“The Prima facie is that it is an high intensity blast that naturally hints it is an IED blast”, he further added.

Reacting to the query whether the terrorists were foreigners, the SSP, said, “We have not said that it is media’s assumption”.

“There were full chances of terrorist attack here as the blast indicates as such. Our presence was here yesterday and our SHO sir was also on patrol here and seeing him they might have hurled the grenade first here and later they planted the IED”, he alleged.

“We didn’t had inputs on terror assault. Our SHO use to patrol the nearby village and the preparators came after seeing his vehicle”, he said.

“We have a deployment in a nearby village as well as on the bridge which discouraged them from carrying out the terror attack”, he added.
