The incident triggered memories of the February 14 vehicle-borne suicide attack on a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) convoy in Pulwama that claimed the lives of 40 personnel.
The driver of the private car remained untraced and is believed to have escaped the scene after his vehicle caught fire.
