Srinagar/UNI: Militants on Sunday hurled two grenades on security forces in south Kashmir district of Pulwama, but they failed to explode, an Army official said.

He said the militants attempted an attack on the Central Armed Police Force (CAPF) at 1645 hrs on Sunday at Chersoo, Awantipora in Pulwama.

''Suspects moving on a bike threw two grenades on the CAPF deployment, without taking out the pin,'' said the official, adding that the grenades did not explode.

Official sources said that the militants managed to escape from the spot.

''Security forces have been rushed to the area and a search operation has been launched to nab the attackers,'' they added.
