Union Minister Amit Shah on Sunday declared that those responsible for the heinous terror attack on pilgrims in Jammu and Kashmir's Reasi will face severe justice.

Shortly after his swearing-in ceremony, Shah spoke with Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha and DGP R R Swain to address the aftermath of the attack, which has claimed nine lives and injured 33.

'Deeply pained by the attack on pilgrims in Reasi, J&K. I have spoken with the Lieutenant Governor and the DGP to inquire about the incident. The perpetrators will not be spared and will face the full force of the law,' Shah asserted on social media platform 'X'.

The minister, who is expected to retain his Home Minister portfolio, stated that the local administration is working tirelessly to provide immediate medical care. 'My prayers are with the families of the deceased, and I wish a speedy recovery for the injured,' Shah added.

According to a senior police official, terrorists ambushed a bus carrying pilgrims from Uttar Pradesh in Reasi district on Sunday evening, causing it to plummet into a gorge. The attack transpired while the bus was en route from the Shiv Khori temple to the Mata Vaishno Devi shrine near Teryath village in the Poni area around 6:15 pm.
