The blast occurred after the early morning prayer
Srinagar: An explosion outside a mosque prayer hall early Thursday wounded in Jammu and Kashmir, police said.
The blast occurred after the early morning prayer in Trenz, a village 60 kilometers (40 miles) south of Srinagar, said police officer Syed Javaid Mujtaba Gillani.
Abdul Gani Dar, a wounded 75-year-old, said a tumbler lying in the mosque complex blew up with a deafening sound as a caretaker picked it up while people were leaving the area. Four people with multiple shrapnel wounds were taken to a hospital in Srinagar, police said. Police are investigating, but no one has claimed responsibility for the blast.
Police defused a similar device in the area on Thursday in a house belonging to a commander of Hizbul Mujahedeen, said Gillani.
