Two CRPF troopers were injured when militants fired a grenade at their camp in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district on Monday evening, police said.

Militants fired a grenade at the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) camp in Tral town of Pulwama, a police official said.

"Two CRPF jawans sustained minor injuries in the grenade fired from an UBGL (under barrel grenade launcher). The area has been cordoned off and searches mounted to trace the militants," the official said.

Meanwhile, the Army today foiled an infiltration bid along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch district. 

Soldiers deployed along the LoC in Poonch detected a suspicious movement at around 0330 hours and engaged the "Pakistan-backed terrorists", a defence spokesman said. 


As the Indian troops fired on them, the terrorists returned fire and ran back across the LoC, he said. 

An intense combing operation was conducted which resulted in recovery eight rucksacks (one combat jacket each), one Underbarrel Grenade Launchers (UBGL), one binocular, one radio set with antenna, 7 shawls medicines, 7 ready-to-eat meals, a mobile phone, cells, personal clothing and eatables, the spokesperson said.
