The attack comes days after a Kashmiri Pandit was killed in a targeted attack in the same district.

According to the police, a terrorist threw a grenade on non-local labourers in Harmen area in Shopian late Monday night.

The two labourers killed were identified as Ram Sagar and Monish Kumar, both hailing from Kannauj in Uttar Pradesh.

The police said that the attacker was arrested hours after he threw the grenade.

"A 'hybrid terrorist' of Lashkar-e-Taiba, Imran Bashir Ganie, who lobbed the grenade is arrested by Shopian police. Raids are underway," said Vijay Kumar,

Additional Director General of Police Jammu and Kashmi said ."Hybrid terrorists" are unlisted radicalised people who carry out terror strikes and slip back into society without any trace.

The killing which is considered as a part of a series of targeted attacks, has triggered protests in various parts of Jammu and Kashmir.
