Blast kills 1, injures 5 in Indian Kashmir

— Indian police in Kashmir said a blast in a liquor shop killed one person and wounded another five.

A police officer said a grenade is suspected to have been used in Saturday’s attack on the outskirts of Jammu, the winter capital of the Indian portion of Kashmir. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to reporters.

Nearly a dozen militant groups have been fighting against Indian rule in the Himalayan region. In the past, they have demanded closure of liquor shops.

However, no one claimed responsibility for Saturday’s blast.

On Thursday, gunmen fired into a liquor shop in Srinagar, killing one person in Indian-run Kashmir’s main city.

Kashmir is divided between India and Pakistan, which have fought two wars over it since 1947.
