SRINAGAR, Indian-controlled Kashmir (CNN) -- Five people, including three children, were killed Thursday in a grenade attack on a bus stand in Srinagar, police said.
The blast wounded 18 others. No group immediately claimed responsibility.
Deputy Inspector General of Kashmir Police A.S. Lone said the victims were migrant workers from northern India who were gathered near the cashier's counter of the bus stand.
The attack came five days after the bombing of an army convoy killed nine Indian soldiers and wounded 14 others in Srinagar.
Elsewhere in the Indian-administered part of Kashmir, suspected militants forced themselves into the home of a former militant and opened fire, police said.
The homeowner, along with two relatives and another person, was killed in a village in the Doda district, about 105 miles (170 km) south of Srinagar.
No one claimed responsibility for that attack, either.
For the past 18 years, Kashmir has been wracked by a bloody separatist campaign.
Authorities say up to 43,000 people have died, although some human rights groups and non-governmental organizations put the death toll at twice that.
