Srinagar, Feb. 22 (ANI): Two people were reportedly injured in a blast that rocked a lower court here today. The blast took place in an ammunition store at court located near the busy city centre Lal Chowk area of the city. “The sound of a blast was heard from inside the godown this morning. Now, our men are trying to take out all the stuff lying inside the godown,” said Afdul Mujtaba, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP), Srinagar.
