In the second attack on Amarnath pilgrims this week, terrorists on Saturday threw a grenade at a community kitchen in Pahalgam, injuring at least 10 people, mostly sadhus.

The ultras hurled a grenade towards a langar at a Gurudwara near police station Pahalgam, 100 km from Srinagar in Anantnag district of south Kashmir at around 1.10 pm, officials said.

The grenade exploded inside the langar area where pilgrims had gathered for their lunch resulting in injuries to eight sadhus, a pilgrim and a driver of state road transport corporation, they said.

One pilgrim was killed and several injured in a terrorist attack on Baltal base camp on Tuesday.
