12-year-old boy killed in grenade attack in Kishtw

A 12-year-old boy, the son of a Special Police Officer, was killed when suspected militants lobbed a grenade at their house late Monday night in a remote village of Kishtwar district in Jammu and Kashmir.
 
Police sources in Kishtwar said militants lobbed the grenade late Monday night at the house of Shadi Lal, a Special Police Officer (SPO). Lal’s house is in the Dachhan area, 250 km north-east of Jammu. The explosion killed his 12-year-old son Inderjit and injured three other inmates.
 
“Shadi Lal is posted as the bodyguard of a local Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader in Dachhan,” said a police source adding that Shadi Lal had taken part in a number of anti-militancy operations in the area and “this seems to be a revenge attack”. Security forces comprising police and army have launched search operations to catch the militants involved in the attack.
