One person was killed and 31 wounded, including two Amarnath pilgrims, when terrorists hurled three grenades at the city's busy General Bus Stand area on Monday morning, one of which hit a Vaishnodevi-bound bus, police said.

Terrorists hurled the first grenade at the General Bus Stand in the city around 7.32 am, hitting a bus headed for Katra, the base of the Vaishnodevi shrine, followed by two other similar attacks within seconds which hit three other buses, police said.

An unidentified person was killed on the spot and 31 people, including two Amarnath pilgrims, were injured, they said adding that three of the wounded persons are said to critical.

Atleast six buses were damaged, four badly, in the attack. Police and CRPF personnel have rushed to the spot and cordoned off the entire area.

However, extent of the damage and casualties was restricted as most of these buses were empty and were awaiting passengers, police said.

The injured have been admitted to the GMC hospital in the city.

No terrorist outfit has yet claimed responsibility for the attacks.
