SRINAGAR, July 18: Suspected militants fired a rifle grenade at the civil secretariat in Srinagar, the seat of Jammu and Kashmir government, officials said Wednesday.
The grenade, however, did not explode.
The grenade was fired at the civil secretariat at around 12.35 pm which landed inside the premises, the official said.
A bomb disposal squad was called in to neutralise the explosive.
While Chief Minister Omar Abdullah was not present inside the Civil Secretariat due to engagements elsewhere, several of his cabinet colleagues and senior bureaucrats were present in the complex.
They said security around the complex has been strengthened and an operation launched to nab the militants.
No militant outfit has claimed responsibility for the attack so far.
