PESHAWAR: Militants attacked a police mobile van in Peshawar on Sunday evening, leaving five policemen including the additional SHO injured, officials said.

The injured Additional SHO Imranuddin told the media that assailants riding a motorcycle attacked the mobile van with a petrol bomb.

The injured have been shifted to the Lady Reading Hospital Peshawar where the condition of the driver is said to be critical.

The militants had also tried to target Additional SHO Imranuddin on January 1 after his mobile van was attacked with a bomb near Jinnah Park. No policeman was injured in that incident as the mobile van was empty.

However ten passersby and vendors had been injured in the attack.

Meanwhile, in another incident, the police seized two hand grenades from a bag near Phandu Chowk, which was defused by the bomb disposal squad.
