White House strongly condemns Amarnath terror attack

"We will follow leads like in the case of killing of an SHO and five police men where the mastermind Bashir Laskhari was killed after gathering conclusive evidence against him, " said an official.

He, however, said India was prepared to deal with what Pakistan was doing. The bus, which was returning from Amarnath, the cave shrine of Lord Shiva, located in the Himalayas at an altitude of 12,756 feet, to Jammu, was attacked for the second time in quick session, the IE report says. Strongly condemn the attack on Amarnath yatris.

Dubbing the attack on Amarnath Pilgrims an attack on most fundamental liberties, the White House on Wednesday condemned the attack.

The annual 40-day long Amarnath Yatra has continued uninterrupted despite Monday's terror attack in Khanabal area on the Jammu-Srinagar highway in which seven pilgrims were killed and 19 others were injured.

On the probe, Singh said: "No one should jump to any conclusion on the attack".

The killing has sparked an outrage in Kashmir, with most people dismissing denouncing the attack on pilgrims. Besides, the bus also deviated from the vehicular part of the Amarnath yatra route which is between Pahalgam and Jammu.

The civil society, he said, has proved and vindicated the faith that India stands for.

Top intelligence officials claim the terrorists were forced to look for sitting ducks due to heavy security arrangements made by the army and government forces in Kashmir, India Today reported.

Singh said the civil society can not survive without the security forces.

"The kind of restraint that they are exercising sometimes entails risk to their lives and jobs", he said. "I kept on driving until we reached a safe place", the driver told reporters at the airport.

He said the protracted phase of militancy and violence would finally meet its end. Reacting to the attack, Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti said the attack is a blot on the Kashmiris and Muslims. After many years everyone in Kashmir is on the same page on something.

In India's current febrile political atmosphere, it is vital for political parties and governments to send out a clear signal that what happened in Anantnag will stay in Anantnag and that no attempt to retaliate against innocents in other parts of the country would be tolerated. Last month, China said Indian troops crossed an global boundary, while India argued its forces were mobilized in response to the construction of roads close to the trijunction border between India, Bhutan and China, threatening the security of Indian ally Bhutan.
