Shabnam, Shazia and Irfan-- aged between seven and eight years-- were seriously injured when a grenade, hurled by unidentified terrorists towards a security picket, exploded on the roadside at Bumai in Sopore, the sources said.
All the three teenagers were brought to Srinagar's SMHS hospital and the doctors attending on them have described their condition as serious, the sources said.
