Srinagar, June 28 (IANS) Separatist guerrillas fired two rocket-propelled grenades at an army camp in Srinagar Thursday, but a defence statement said the projectiles fell in a ground without causing any damage. No separatist group has owned responsibility for the attack.

“Unidentified miscreants fired two projectiles at Tatoo Ground at 11.45 a.m. aimed at security forces stationed there. However, the projectiles fell at open ground and there was no injury of any sort to security personnel or civilians,” a defence statement issued here said.

“The nature of projectile is being ascertained jointly by the police and the security forces. Efforts are in progress to investigate the whereabouts of miscreants by police,” it said.

The incident was the first of its kind after many months as it was generally believed here that the capacity of separatist guerrillas to attack army camps and highly fortified installations in Jammu and Kashmir has been largely undermined.
