Militants in Jammu and Kashmir have devised a novel way to carry out blasts.
An explosive-filled cigarette seized from a civilian last night indicated that the ultras are deviating from their usual techniques and working on different ways to target people in the state.
A civilian got injured when he ignited such a cigarette in the remote Mislai village in Thathri area of Doda district, Col D K Badola, heading the 16 Corp Media Centre, told PTI.
"Militants are now using explosive-filled cigarettes to carry out blasts in Jammu and Kashmir. One such cigarette has been recovered last night," Col Badola said.
"This was for the first time that a cigarette filled with explosive has been recovered from this area," he said.
"A civilian Hansraj Thakkar of Mislai found two Capstan cigarettes in the village and ignited one for smoking. However, it exploded causing injuries to his right hand," Col Badola said.
Army has begun an investigation into the incident, as the method can pose danger to the lives of people in the state, he said.
Smoking kills......(you knew it was coming!)

Heh. That image is NOT what I thought it would be. Switched to prevent leeching, it appears. It was a picture of exploding cigarettes!
Not to worry. I like bacon.
I'd post a Sally Field "you really like me" picture, but it might wind up something worse than bacon.
Militants march around with signs. Terrorists leave bombs lying around. A difference everyone but the MSM and other leftists can see.
Talk about aversion therapy....
Who knew this whole thing would blow up in somebody's face?
That's unique, I hot-link to photos all the time but have never once run into that Those waskwy wabbits!!!
I can see the warnings on the side of the pack...THE SURGEON GENERAL HAS DETERMINED THAT SMOKING MAY RESULT IN THE NEED FOR FACIAL RECONSTRUCTION SURGERY.
Yes Sir, smoking is hazardous to your health. Amen.
Mohamedeans must truly be Loony Tunes.....
Note to self: DO NOT bum a smoke...
Yeah gee, a cigar might contain a nuclear weapon.
I say we start sending the heroes the stuff to roll their own cigs.
You have to be very careful. On another board, a guy thought he was linking to some celebrity's picture, but it came up for the rest of us with a graphic picture of a woman defecating. People were calling for his head, but the mods knew it was a stinger picture.
