Terrorists wounded two policemen and a civilian when they set off two explosions in Kashmir, while rebels shot and injured a political activist in another incident, police said on Thursday.

Rebels detonated a small land mine as a police patrol walked through the village of Qaimoh, 60 kilometers (35 miles) south of Srinagar, the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir, said Hemant Lohia, a top police officer.

Meanwhile a policeman and a civilian, were wounded when terrorists lobbed a hand grenade on Wednesday evening at a police post in the town of Anantnag, 55 kilometers (35 miles) south of Srinagar, Lohia said.

At around the same time, Lohia said, terrorists shot and critically wounded an activist for the state's ruling party, the People's Democratic Party, in the town of Bijbehara, 50 kilometers (30 miles) south of Srinagar.

After initial treatment at a local hospital, he was taken to Srinagar for specialized medical care.
