Srinagar, Sep 13:  Security forces averted a major tragedy when they found six grenades on the national highway in the outskirts of Srinagar Monday.

The alacrity of troops averted an incident on the busy highway. Since, there was a lot of rush on the highway, the grenades were not demolished in-situ. The grenades were handed over to the police for disposal, he said.
