An explosive, apparently left behind at an encounter site around 40 days ago in Kashmir’s Pulwama district, went off on Monday, injuring a boy, police said.

Seventeen-year-old Danish Ahmad Khanday was injured when a shell, he found near an encounter site at Bamnloo in Pulwama, exploded, a police official said.

The boy was taken to a local hospital from where doctors referred him to the SMHS hospital here for treatment, he said.

On July 3, an encounter took place at Bamnloo where three militants were killed by security forces.
