At least eight persons, including two traffic police personnel, were wounded here Sunday when suspected militants set off a hand grenade outside a shop dealing with steel products.
Eyewitnesses and police suspect that two motorcycle-borne youths who were spotted leaving the place hurriedly after the explosion, could be behind the triggering of the blast at around 12:45 pm.
Police suspected PULF militants were behind the blast, considering the domination of the area by Muslims and other extortion cases. The blast was said to have been targeted at a shop owned by one Md. Ali Mohamad (55) of Bihar, who was among the injured. Following the blast, all shops and business establishments at Hatta Golapati area closed down to register a strong protest.
