Amritsar grenade attack could be ‘terrorist act’, say Punjab police.

Punjab police said Sunday the grenade attack on a religious congregation on the outskirts of Amritsar city appears to be a “terrorist act”.

“It  appears to have a terror angle. Because it is against a group (of people) and it is not against any individual. There is no reason to throw a hand grenade on a group of people, so we will take it as a terrorist act. Till proven otherwise, prima facie we will take it as that,” Punjab Director General of Police Suresh Arora told PTI.

Three persons were killed and at least 10 injured in a grenade attack on a religious congregation on the city outskirts on Sunday, police said.
