A grenade blast occurred at the Indian Army’s Triveni Gate near Pathankot’s Dheerapul early morning on Monday. Police said that the CCTV footage, obtained from the scene, will be investigated.

“A grenade blast took place near Triveni Gate of an Army camp in Pathankot. Further investigation is underway. CCTVs footage will be probed,” ANI quoted Surendra Lamba, SSP Pathankot, as saying.
