SRINAGAR, India — Nine people were killed in separate incidents of violence in the strife-torn northern Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, police said Thursday.
Three state government officials were killed Thursday when suspected militants threw grenades at a government building in Srinagar, the summer capital of the state. Eight people were injured, police said in a statement.
The tightly guarded civil secretariat building houses the offices of all state ministers, including the chief minister and senior officials. More than 1,500 people work there.
An official said the grenades exploded near the main gate of the building. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
