Deadly political violence is continuing in Kashmir and other parts of India, as voters prepare to go to the polls Monday in the next round of national elections.
The leader of Kashmir's ruling People's Democratic Party survived a grenade attack by suspected Muslim separatists Sunday, but the grenade that missed her vehicle killed three other people and injured dozens of others.
The attack following a campaign rally in Kulgam was the third attempt on the life of Mehbooba Mufti since campaigning began.
Several other people were injured in another grenade attack in Srinagar, while two women were beheaded in a village north of the summer capital
Several thousand security forces have been sent to bolster security in Kashmir where political separatists have called for a boycott of Monday's elections.
Election-related violence also hit the northeastern state of Manipur, where police said ethnic separatists had shot to death two people late Saturday, including the former state police chief.
India has staggered its parliamentary elections over several weeks to help concentrate its security forces and contain election violence.
