Srinagar: At least seven Amarnath Yatra pilgrims were killed on Monday evening in yet another terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir’s Anantnag district.
According to reports, the terrorists opened fire on a bus of pilgrims around 8.20 PM which injured about 12 persons as well.
The bus, which was coming from Gujarat, was reportedly not part of the main yatra convoy.
As a result, it was not registered with the shrine board, the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) told media.
The CRPF covers the main yatra convoy otherwise.
Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah condemned the attack and tweeted: “Very sad news. The attack cannot be condemned strongly enough. My sympathies to the families & prayers for the injured.”
