A tragic terror attack claimed nine lives on a pilgrimage bus in Jammu and Kashmir's Reasi district, four of whom were a family from Jaipur. Among the deceased were a two-year-old boy. The attack occurred around 6.10 pm Sunday as terrorists opened fire on the 53-seater bus in Reasi district.

The bus, en route from Shiv Khori temple to Katra, veered off the road following the onslaught and plunged into a deep gorge near the Teryath village in Poni area. The victims from Jaipur were identified as Rajendra Saini (42), his wife Mamta Saini (40), their relative Pooja Saini (30), and her two-year-old son Titu. Pooja's husband Pavan (32) sustained injuries in the incident.

Rajasthan Chief Minister Bhajanlal Sharma expressed his condolences and directed state officials to collaborate with Jammu and Kashmir authorities to facilitate the return of the bodies. The tragedy has cast a shadow over Jaipur, as these residents were part of serene pilgrimage marred by senseless violence.
