Many injured in Indian Kashmir city blast

SRINAGAR, Indian-controlled Kashmir (CNN) — A massive explosion has struck a highway overpass near the Indian-controlled Kashmir government’s main building, injuring 17 people, according to police.

The blast hit a highway overpass near the Civil Secretariat, the region’s seat of government, and its high court complex, senior police official M.B. Nathyeal said Wednesday.

None of the injuries were serious, the attending physician at the hospital said.

It is unclear if the explosion, which happened around 6 p.m. local time (1230 GMT), was the result of a car bomb or a pre-planted roadside bomb, Nathyeal said.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attack, which damaged part of the highway overpass and shattered the windows of nearby buildings and vehicles. E-mail to a friend
