Militant outfit Jaish-e-Muhammad claimed responsibility of the attack. It killed an assistant sub-inspector and three constables, damaged six shops and left a huge crater.

Inspector General of Police (IGP) Kashmir Munir Khan said four policemen were killed in the explosion.

Sources said the IED was planted beneath a shop by the militants and detonated through remote control. In a statement issued to news agency GNS, the Jaish spokesperson said its "Shaheed Afzal Guru squad" carried out the attack.
