Security forces on Monday launched a massive cordon and search operation to track down the terrorists responsible for a deadly attack on a passenger bus in Jammu and Kashmir's Reasi district. The incident, which led to the tragic deaths of nine people, involved a bus carrying pilgrims from Uttar Pradesh and Delhi being ambushed.

The bus was en route from Shiv Khori temple to the Mata Vaishno Devi shrine at Katra and plunged into a deep gorge following the terrorist attack on Sunday evening. As the terrorists opened fire, the 53-seater bus veered off its path.

Security forces, including the Army, police, and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), have implemented a multi-dimensional cordon in the Teryath-Poni-Shiv Khori area. Using surveillance equipment such as drones and sniffer dogs, they have commenced a thorough combing operation in and around the district. The terrorists are believed to be hiding in the dense forests and deep gorges of neighboring Rajouri and Reasi districts. Senior Superintendent of Police, Reasi, Mohita Sharma, confirmed the search operation's launch, while local village defense committees have also been mobilized.
