Massive security has been deployed in Jammu and Kashmir's Rajouri sector in the wake of the grenade attack at Jasbir Singh's house

A 4-year-old was killed and seven people were injured in a grenade attack on Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Jasbir Singh’s house in Khandli of Jammu-Kashmir’s District Rajouri on 12 August. The deceased minor was the nephew of Jasbir Singh.

Jammu ADGP confirmed that the grenade attack was carried out by unknown persons on BJP leader Jasbir Singh’s house in Khandli of Rajouri when the family was on their terrace.

Massive security has been deployed in District Rajouri of Jammu and Kashmir in the wake of the grenade attack at Jasbir Singh’s residence.

Visuals from the house show extensive damage. Another child, a 7-year-old, has been injured too.

The 4-year-old child succumbed to the injuries during the at the government medical college hospital in Rajouri on Thursday midnight. The body has been handed over to the family for last rites, said officials.

Meanwhile, four people, including two security personnel, were injured in an encounter that broke out between militants and security forces on 12 August after the ultras fired upon a convoy in Jammu and Kashmir’s district.

The BJP has strongly condemned the attack on its leader and demanded the immediate arrest of the killers. The incident has fuelled protests in the valley alleging that Jasbir Singh was not provided with enough security.

Jammu-Kashmir BJP chief Ravinder Raina said Pakistan was orchestrating the terror attacks on BJP leaders. “We strongly condemn the attack. Police should immediately arrest the terrorists responsible for it,” he said.

Just days ago, another BJP leader, Sarpanch Ghulam Rasool and his wife, a Panchayat member, were shot dead by terrorists in Anantnag on 9 August.

“Terrorists opened fire on a convoy on the Jammu-Srinagar national at Malpora in the Qazigund area of Kulgam,” officials said.

The officials said the convoy was on its way to Srinagar from Jammu.
