Srinagar: Militants on Thursday made an abortive attempt to blow up the Srinagar Doordarshan station by launching three grenade attacks, security sources said. They said the grenades hurled in quick succession exploded at the main gate of the heavily-guarded station, without causing any injury or damage. A Doordarshan spokesman said three powerful grenade blasts shook the area as the ultras exploded them near the main gate of the building.
