Later a policeman was shot at and injured in nearby Anantnag district, prompting authorities to tighten vigil.
No militant outfit has claimed responsibility for the attacks which come barely four days after Chief Minister Omar Abdullah announced plans to revoke Armed Forces Special Powers Act from certain parts of the state.
The first incident occurred at Maisuma area near Lal Chowk when the ultras hurled a grenade targeting a CRFF bunker outside Dashnami Akhara building at 12:25 PM, police said.
The grenade exploded resulting in injuries to three CRPF jawans who were admitted to a hospital.
Minutes later, another grenade was hurled by militants at a police post in Batmaloo, less than a kilometre away from site of the first blast, they said.
No one was injured in the Batmaloo blast.
Police and CRPF personnel cordoned off both the sites and detained a suspect for questioning.
As the security agencies were looking for clues to identify and nab the attackers behind the twin grenade attacks, militants made another attempt to target policemen in Shopian district of south Kashmir.
Militants threw a grenade at police personnel who were on guard duty outside a bank, in Zainapora area, 55 kms from here, at around 1435 hrs, police said
