June 9, Jammu & Kashmir: In a tragic incident on Sunday, suspected terrorists fired upon a bus carrying pilgrims in Jammu and Kashmir’s Reasi district, resulting in the deaths of ten people and injuries to thirty-three others, according to police and officials. Following the attack, the bus veered off the road and plunged into a gorge.

The bus was en route from the Shiv Khori temple in Reasi to Katra when it came under fire. Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Reasi, Mohita Sharma, explained that the driver lost control of the vehicle due to the gunfire, causing it to tumble into the gorge.

“The passengers were non-locals, and their identities have not been confirmed yet,” SSP Sharma said in a statement to reporters. “Initial reports suggest that terrorists fired upon the passenger bus traveling from Shiv Khori to Katra. As a result of the firing, the driver lost control, leading to the bus’s fall into the gorge. A total of 33 people were injured. The rescue operation has been completed.”

The SSP added that the Shiv Khori shrine has been secured and area domination has been conducted to prevent further incidents.

Authorities believe the terrorists responsible for the attack may be hiding in the upper reaches of Rajouri, Poonch, and Reasi.
