Three Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel were injured in grenade attack in  central Kashmir's Ganderbal district on Wednesday.

A police official said that militants hurled a grenade on 118 Battalion CRPF in Daderhama, Ganderbal resulting in injuries to three CRPF personnel.

He said that the injured CRPF men were shifted to a hospital while the area was  cordoned off to nab the attackers.

There has been a spurt in grenade attack cases in Kashmir in recent months and the latest attack comes just after maiden district development council polls ended in the union territory.

Prior to that, a dozen civilians were injured when militants lobbed a grenade on security forces in Kakapora area of south Kashmir's Pulwama district on November 18.
