Amritsar: Hours after the grenade attack on a religious congregation in on Sunday, Police said that the attack appears to be “terrorist act”.
At least three people were killed and 10 injured in the attack on a religious congregation with around 200 devotees on the outskirts of the city.
The blast occurred during a religious gathering at Nirankari Bhavan in Adliwal village near Amritsar’s Rajasansi.
Punjab Director General of Police Suresh Arora told news agency PTI, “It (this incident) appears to have a terror angle. Because it is against a group (of people) and it is not against any individual. There is no reason to throw a hand grenade on a group of people, so we will take it as a terrorist act. Till proven otherwise, prima facie we will take it as that.”
