Seven civilians injured in twin Jammu blasts

Seven civilians were injured in coordinated twin blasts, which went off within a short interval of 20 minutes, in Jammu’s Narwal. The incident has posed a security challenge ahead of the Republic Day and Rahul Gandhi’s ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ rally in Jammu next week.

The first explosion took place inside a parked vehicle in Narwal’s Transport Yard area around 11 a.m. followed by the second blast metres away in another vehicle.

The condition of the seven injured in these blasts was stated to be stable, officials said.

“The first explosion took place inside a parked Bolero vehicle around 11 a.m. The area was vacated immediately. As the process of evacuation was completed, another explosion took place just 50 metres away. All the injured are stable. The incident is being investigated,” Additional Director-General of Police Mukesh Singh said.

The police could not immediately divulge the details about the nature of blasts. A forensic team lifted traces of explosives from the spot to determine if it was an improvised explosive device (IED) with a timer or a sticky bomb, officials said.

J&K Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha was briefed by top police officials about the incident. He called for “urgent steps to identify and take action against those responsible”. Sinha has also announced a relief of ₹50,000 for those injured in the incident.
