Unidentified persons hurled petrol bombs toward the Srinagar residence of Jammu and Kashmir Education Minister Naeem Akhtar during the night. Police sources, however, said no one was hurt. Sources claimed that one of the two petrol bombs landed in the house compound at ParRaipur while another fell outside. The minister, consider to be a close aide of chief minister Mehbooba Mufti, currently occupies a government bungalow at the highly guarded Gupkar Road in this disputed region’s summer capital Srinagar. There was however no independent confirmation to the nocturnal attack.
