Amarnath Yatra Terror Attack

"Today, Kashmiri people have proven that there is no place for militancy and bloodshed".

Salahuddin has openly admitted to carrying out attacks against India, including on an Indian Air Force base in Pathankot, Punjab, on January 2, 2016.

Senior army officers in south Kashmir say they had still been taking precautions while dealing with civilian population who throng encounter sites to give safe passage to militants but that is likely to change now.

Meanwhile, as the annual pilgrimage continues, the central government issued the "highest alert" in Jammu and Kashmir.

The pilgrims were returning after paying obeisance at the shrine nestled in the Himalayas at a height of 4,115 meters (13,500 feet) when the attack occurred.

To prevent further attacks, security forces must step up intelligence gathering and follow-up action.

Chanting "Bam bam Bhole", 3,289 pilgrims, 756 of them women, began the arduous trek both from the traditional Pahalgam route and the shorter Baltal route from Jammu, an official spokesman said.

"We are too anxious about the United Nations will say and the sanctions that our allies will impose", this person added. "We'll soon deal with them", police Inspector-General Muneer Ahmed Khan said.

United Blood Services issues urgent call for donors

Sources said Singh had directed the officials to ensure enhanced security for the pilgrims.

"No Kashmiri has ever targeted any pilgrims, and this barbarity and atrocity is the trademark of Indian forces", the group's statement said. The bus was attacked twice within a distance of 75 metres with two groups of militants raining bullets on it from the front and right side.

Omar Abdullah, a former chief minister of Kashmir, asked India's home ministry to protect Kashmiri students and workers across the nation.

The "Raees" star was one of the many B-town celebrities who condemned the attacks and wrote, "Saddening to see innocent lives being taken".

The rewards have been announced for Gafoor for displaying exemplary alertness and courage by which he saved several lives as he continued to drive the bus in the midst of firing by the terrorists.

Ibrahim Shahdad, former president KCCI told Kashmir reader that the rally and protest was organised not for Tuesday attack incident alone but against every killing in Kashmir.

The Union minister complimented the security agencies and the Jammu and Kashmir Director General of Police (DGP) for identifying the mastermind of the attack within a few hours. LeT spokesman Abdullah Ghaznavi, while condemning the attack on pilgrims, has said, "It is against Islamic teachings".
