After treatment, the injured pilgrims were airlifted to the Srinagar Airport this morning. Slamming those trying to do politics over the killing of innocent pilgrims, Owaisi said they should not allow LeT and ISI to create problems.

"Terrorists fired on a police checkpoint and the fire was returned".

"India wants to sabotage the freedom struggle of Kashmiris, therefore it uses such attacks to full fill its nefarious agenda".

Sources said special operations are being planned to keep terrorists on the run. While seven of the passengers were gunned down by the terrorists, the 49 others who made it alive have one person to thank, driver Sheikh Saleem.

"The BJP is in power at the Centre and is also ruling Jammu and Kashmir along with the PDP". In a high-level emergency meeting last night, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath personally reviewed the security situation in the state.

Seven Amarnath pilgrims from Gujarat were killed in the attack and 14 others were injured in the attack. Also the19 injured and 51 yatris who were travelling have returned. She directed the hospital administrations at both the places to ensure best possible care.

"The attack deserves strongest condemnation from everyone", Modi said.

Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti said in a statement: "This is an assault on our values and traditions which we hold dear". His act of bravery and valour won him praises from the survivors of the attack as well as politicians and citizens from across the country, who thanked Salim for saving over 50 lives despite heavy firing by terrorists on the Srinagar-Jammu highway.

LeT spokesman, Abdullah Ghaznavi, condemned the attack, saying it was against Islamic teachings. It is also reported that the bus company did not follow the norm of registering the vehicle with the Amarnath shrine board.

He said he and his friends had not made plans to join this year's yatra, but had suddenly chose to sign up for the pilgrimage.

"This is an attack on humanity".
