Budgam: A loud sound was heard by inhabitants of a locality in Jammu and Kashmir’s Budgam where some minority families reside too, confirmed local police on Saturday.

No injury has been reported and an investigation has been launched into the incident.

While speaking to media, Budgam Police said, “At around 0745 hours, a loud sound was heard by inhabitants of Kralpora where some minority families also reside. SSP Budgam along with BDS team visited the site.”

“No injury reported. Further investigation into the incident is going on,” said the police.

Later in the day, the police stated that the preliminary investigation suggests that some unexploded old shell in old building material and scrap piled up there might have exploded which caused the loud sound.

Meanwhile, Muslim residents of Kursari Panchayat in Jammu and Kashmir’s Doda set an example of communal harmony by joining hands with Hindus in moving giant idols to an ancient temple.

Six idols, each weighing between 500 kg and 700 kg and made of granite, were bought from Rajasthan to be installed at the recently renovated Shiv temple in Kursari, located at a hill top, three kilometres away from the Bhaderwah-Doda highway.

The Shiv Mandir committee was caught in a fix due to non-availability of a road, making the transport of the idols an uphill task.

Sensing the difficulty, Kursari Panchayat sarpanch Sajid Mir not only allotted Rs 4.6 lakh from capital expenditure budget for the urgent construction of a road but also asked 150 villagers from his community to help.
