Two boys were injured after a grenade they were toying with went off in Pulwama district of south Kashmir on Friday, officials said.
They said Sharafat Bashir and Junaid Bilal, both 13, were fiddling with the explosive device when it went off near Rohama, causing serious injuries to one of them.
Both were shifted to PHC Rohama where from they were shifted to district hospital Pulwama.
A doctor at PHC Rohama told news agency GNS that the condition of Junaid is critical as he has suffered serious wounds in his head.
Reports said the boys had found the grenade earlier today at the site of a gunfight that left two militants dead in Drabgam, nearly five kilometers from the spot where it went off.
