Police said that CRPF men were undergoing special training to handle hand grenades, during a refresher course when one of the grenades (used for training purposes only) exploded due to some unknown reason.
The injured CRPF men were rushed to Government Medical College Hospital Jammu for treatment. The injured were identified as Arshad Ahmed of Pulwama, Suresh Kumar of Patyari, Rajeev Kumar of Rajouri, Muhammad Yasin of Poonch, Arshad Rather of Pulwama and Sushil Kumar of Pathankot.
