Jammu, June 10: Authorities have initiated a sweeping search operation to capture the terrorists responsible for the assault on a bus that careened into a gorge in Jammu and Kashmir's Reasi district, resulting in the tragic demise of 10 pilgrims and injuring 33 others.

 

SSP Reasi, Mohita Sharma, revealed that the bus driver lost control of the vehicle after assailants opened fire on it in Teryath village of Poni area in Reasi district on Sunday evening. Subsequently, the bus veered off the road, plunging into a gorge and claiming 10 lives while leaving dozens injured.

 

The bus was en route from Shiv Khori temple to Katra town when the incident unfolded. Promptly, the Army, police, and paramilitary forces, assisted by local residents, sprang into action to conduct rescue operations.

 

"The rescue mission concluded by 8.10 p.m. yesterday. The injured were promptly transported to hospitals in Reasi and Jammu city. The identities of the pilgrims are currently under verification as they are all from outside J&K," stated officials.

 

A joint operational headquarters comprising police, Army, and CRPF was established at the scene, initiating a multifaceted operation to apprehend the attackers. The culprits behind this heinous act are suspected to be hiding in the mountainous regions of Rajouri, Reasi, and Poonch.

 

The assault on innocent pilgrims has sparked widespread condemnation.

 

J&K Lt Governor, Manoj Sinha, affirmed on his social media, "PM Shri Narendra Modi Ji has taken cognizance of the situation and has directed me to closely monitor developments. Those responsible for this despicable act will face swift justice. The injured will receive top-notch medical care and assistance."

 

Union Minister, Amit Shah, provided an update on the ground situation in Reasi, asserting that the local J&K administration is working tirelessly to provide immediate medical aid to the injured. He vowed that those accountable for the attack on pilgrims would face consequences.

 

J&K BJP President Ravinder Raina remarked, "Cowardly Pakistani terrorists cannot withstand the might of the Indian Army, Jammu and Kashmir Police, and our paramilitary forces. The perpetrators of this audacious act will pay dearly for their crimes."
