In a rare instance, passers-by on Tuesday caught a suspected terrorist and handed him over to police soon after he lobbed a grenade on a vehicle in the heart of this city, officials said.
Ten people -- seven from Jammu, two locals and a tourist from West Bengal -- were injured in the attack.
The people nabbed Mohammad Afzal, a resident of Nesbal in Baramulla district, after he allegedly hurled a grenade on the vehicle near the Tourist Reception Centre this afternoon, they said.
Afzal was handed over to a police party that was patrolling the area. He was later taken to an undisclosed location for interrogation, the officials said.
At least seven persons were killed and 37 injured in a string of grenade attacks in the heart of Srinagar on Tuesday.
