Grenade attacks in Kashmir
Two grenade attacks in Indian-administered Kashmir have left 30 people injured including six policemen, police say.

The Line of Control in Kashmir
Alleged infiltration over Kashmir's Line of Control has raised tension
The first attack took place in the holy town of Chrar-e-Sharief, west of Srinagar, on Friday morning when militants launched a grenade at a police station.

Two police were hurt and one prisoner.

Two hours later militants threw a grenade at a police vehicle in the southern district of Pulwama. Four policemen were reported injured and 23 civilians.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attacks.

In another incident, police say Indian troops killed a militant, Abu Altaf, in a fire-fight at Patusa in the northern district of Baramullah.

Disputed

There has been continuing violence in Indian-administered Kashmir in spite of the thawing of relations between India and Pakistan.

President Pervez Musharraf insisted again this week that there was no longer any infiltration of militants into the area from Pakistan.

That was disputed by India's deputy Prime Minister LK Advani who said that infiltration was continuing.
