A man has been arrested for the attack, and hunt is on for the other, the Chief Minister said.  The arrested man has been identifies as Bikramjit Singh. “A search for another accused, Avtar Singh, is on,” Singh said. Comparing the granade used in the attack with ones recovered from other areas, Mr Singh said, “This is the one being used against forces in Kashmir.This is the one that was burst  made under license by Pakistan licensed factory and is filled with pellets”. Around 20 people were also injured as two men on a bike, their faces covered, threw a grenade at the Nirankari Bhawan at Amritsar’s Rajasansi village on Sunday morning. Like every Sunday, a religious ceremony was on at the time. Eyewitnesses said the men had threatened the devotees with a gun before flinging the explosive into the prayer hall.

Several people from Sikh separatist organisations were detained for questioning.
