Six Indian policemen hurt in attack

Six policemen were hurt yesterday when suspected separatist militants attacked their patrol with a grenade in Indian Kashmir's main city of Srinagar, a police spokesman said.

It was the third assault in 10 days on police in Srinagar, the main hub of militants fighting Indian rule in the Himalayan region. Two policemen were killed in the previous two attacks.

Yesterday's attack took place near a police station in the centre of Srinagar, the spokesman said.

"The condition of one of the injured is critical," the spokesman said.

A manhunt has been launched to "arrest or eliminate" the attackers, he added.
