Seven people were injured on Wednesday when terrorists detonated a powerful grenade in a Jammu and Kashmir town.

The incident took place in the market in the central Kashmir town of Magam.

The blast triggered panic in Magam, situated on the Srinagar-Gulmarg road, leading to disruption of traffic.
