Terrorist Attack on Pilgrims’ Bus in J&K

Jammu and Kashmir: As Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s cabinet was being sworn in at Rashtrapati Bhavan in New Delhi, a tragic terrorist attack unfolded in the Reasi area of Jammu and Kashmir. A bus carrying devotees to the sacred Mata Vaishno Devi shrine came under fire from terrorists, resulting in the deaths of 10 pilgrims.

The attack occurred while the bus was en route to Katra from the Shivkhodi temple. As the vehicle entered a forested area, terrorists lying in ambush began firing. The sudden gunfire caused the driver to lose control, and the bus veered off the road, tumbling into a ravine. The bus was carrying approximately 50 devotees at the time of the incident.

Following the attack, security forces, including the Indian Army, CRPF, and Jammu and Kashmir Police, swiftly arrived at the scene. They have initiated a comprehensive relief and rescue operation, evacuating the injured to nearby hospitals for urgent medical attention.

The terrorists involved in this heinous act are believed to be hiding in the upper regions of Rajouri, Poonch, and Reasi. In response, a joint search operation by the Indian Army, CRPF, and local police is underway to apprehend the perpetrators.

The local administration is actively involved in the relief efforts, ensuring that the injured receive timely medical care. The authorities are also coordinating with security agencies to secure the area and prevent further incidents.
