Seven pilgrims on the Amarnath Yatra were killed today in a terror attack in Anantnag at about 8:30 pm. At least 12 people were injured in one the worst terror strikes in the state of Jammu and Kashmir; they have been moved to hospitals.
The bus that was fired on was registered in Gujarat. Police sources said that it had violated the rules of the pilgrimage which bans buses from travelling on a highway after 7 pm for security reasons.
The bus was also reportedly not part of the official tour for the Yatra which means that it was not given the customary police protection.
