Srinagar: There was a grenade attack on the Hurriyat headquarters at Rajbagh in Srinagar on Wednesday night.
The incident is of significance as it comes just before Chairman of the Hurriyat Conference, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and his senior party colleagues Abdul Ghani Bhatta and Bilal Lone, who had accompanied him Pakistan, are expected to return to Srinagar on Thursday.
The grenade was lobbed inside the compound of the building.
Sources said there was no causality or much damage to property and none of the top Hurriyat leaders was present in the office when the blast occurred.
This is not the first incident when Mirwaiz Umer Farooq has been attacked.
There was a grenade attack at Hurriyat Conference Chairman's house in Nagneeb in Srinagar in January just before his visit to Pakistan.
