JAMMU: At least 28 people were injured on Thursday in a grenade attack by suspected terrorists at the crowded general bus stand in the heart of Jammu, a senior police officer said.

"It was a grenade explosion, all the injured have been shifted to a hospital," IGP Jammu MK Sinha had initially said. "I request everybody to maintain calm," Sinha told reporters at the site of the blast. "We are chasing all leads."

This is the third grenade attack by terrorists in the bus stand area of the city since May last year.

The scene of the blast along the B C Road was sealed off by police and a massive hunt has been launched to nab the grenade thrower, Inspector General of Police, Jammu, M K Sinha said.

Sinha, who immediately rushed to the scene to take stock of the situation, said preliminary investigation suggests that someone lobbed the grenade, causing injuries to several people who were evacuated to the Government Medical College (GMC) hospital.

Windscreens of a parked state road transport corporation (SRTC) bus were damaged in the blast, a police official said, adding condition of one of the injured was stated to be "critical".

The injured have been taken to the Government Medical college hospital for treatment.
