Suspected Islamic rebels triggered a blast Monday that wounded three female police officers in India's portion of Kashmir, hours before the arrival of Sonia Gandhi, the leader of India's governing party, police said. The attack on a police vehicle in Rainawari district in Srinagar took place just three kilometers from a lakeside convention center where Gandhi was to address a women's gathering, said Sajad Ahmed, a police officer. "Militants always try to make their presence felt whenever there is a visit by a high dignitary," Ahmed said. "We suspect it has been carried out by militants. We are investigating." No militant group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.
