"Three persons including a policeman, co driver and conductor received burn injuries when an unknown man first broke the front glass of the truck and later threw a petrol bomb inside the truck late last night," a police officer said.
Three persons, the truck driver, a co driver and a conductor were sleeping inside the truck at the time of the incident, the officer stated.

He said that the traffic on the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway was halted since yesterday following the day-long strike call given by various Hindu outfits following the recovery of three carcasses of cows in the districts.
The truck was on its way to Srinagar from Jammu and was halted since yesterday morning near the Shiv Nagar area of the district, the officer said. He said that two inmates of the truck Zahid (19) and Showkat (35) received serious burn injuries and a policeman who tried to help douse the fire also received some burn injuries in the incident.
"Several people have been taken into custody for questioning and we are hopeful to identify and arrest the culprits soon," the officer said.
