Militants on Friday tossed a grenade near the residence of former state Chief Minister and People's Democratic Party (PDP) patron Mufti Mohammad Sayeed at Nowgam by-pass in an attempt to target a police officer, official sources said.

"A grenade was hurled by militants towards a moving vehicle carrying SHO Nowgam Nazir Ahmad at around 6 pm," sources said.

The grenade, however, missed the intended target and exploded on the roadside without causing any harm.

The whole area was cordoned off following the incident, and a search operation launched to nab the militants involved in the attack.

No militant outfit has so far claimed responsibility for the incident.
