Amarnath Yatra

Amarnath Yatra Terror Attack

Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi had asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to accept responsibility for the attack.

Ismail has been active in Kashmir for several years and had moved base to south Kashmir more than a year ago.

The bus carrying pilgrims from Gujarat was registered for the Yatra in Jammu on July 7 and was part of the security convoy reaching the shrine the next day.

It described circumstances eerily similar to what transpired Monday night: "The attack may be in the form of standoff fire on yatra (pilgrimage) convoy, which they (militants) believe will result in flaring of communal tensions throughout the nation".

Deciphering the details of Amarnath Pilgrims attack, the Security agencies on Wednesday said the attack on the bus was carried by four militants out of two were locals. "We'll soon deal with them", police Inspector-General Muneer Ahmed Khan said. Amarnath yatra represents faith and pilgrimage.

On the probe, Singh said that "no one should jump to any conclusion on the attack". "We will overcome the security lapses", Ahir asserted.

"After the first attack, the terrorists chased the bus and fired at it for the second time", said a source, noting that although investigations into the terror attack were in the initial stages, yet the involvement of Abu Ismail had been established beyond any doubt. The security forces raided several places where the attackers could be hiding.

"I am very optimistic that this militancy is also going to outlive its life as we have seen happening in other parts of the country".

N N Vohra and Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to discuss the security arrangements for the pilgrims.

On the way back, the bus left the security convoy and the pilgrims chose to leave for Srinagar on July 8. "Let them come out with their inferences and as a political establishment we will follow it up".

The Russian Embassy in a statement termed the Monday night terror attack in which seven pilgrims were killed a "terrible crime against humanity, which dramatically shows that global terrorists do not respect any faith or religion, that they are ready to conduct barbaric acts to reach their outrageous aims".
