SRINAGAR, Aug 12 (2000): Three women, including two Hungarian tourists, were wounded on Saturday when unidentified militants threw a hand grenade near Kashmir’s holiest shrine, police and witnesses said.
They said the Hungarians, 50-year-old Maria Anna Bokoing and her daughter Rita, and a local Kashmiri woman, were injured by the grenade near Hazratbal shrine in Srinagar, the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir.
Last month a German tourist was abducted and later killed by militants in the rebellion-torn state, and on Thursday a powerful car bomb blast killed 12 people, including a Delhi-based photojournalist.
The Hizbul Mujahideen, a frontline Kashmiri militant group trying to end Indian control of the state, recently called off a brief ceasefire, blaming India for the failure of peace talks.
