New Delhi [India], July 11 (ANI): President Pranab Mukherjee on Tuesday condemned the terror attack on the Amarnath Yatra pilgrims while grieving over the loss of the innocent lives.


President Mukherjee took to Twitter to express the same, "Strongly condemn attack on Amarnath Yatris in J & K ; grieve the loss of innocent lives."


The Prime Minister Narendra Modi too took to his Twitter handle yesterday to condemn the attack and posted, "India will never get bogged down by such cowardly attacks & the evil designs of hate."


"Pained beyond words on the dastardly attack on peaceful Amarnath Yatris in J&K. The attack deserves strongest condemnation from everyone," he tweeted.
"My thoughts are with all those who lost their loved ones in the attack in J&K. My prayers with the injured," he added.


Prime Minister Modi further said that he spoke to Jammu and Kashmir's Governor N.N. Vohra and Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti and has assured all possible assistance.


The death toll in the attack on the Amarnath Yatra pilgrims at Anantnag in Jammu and Kashmir has risen to seven.


The police have also confirmed that as many as 15 people have been injured.


A group of terrorists had earlier opened fire at the bus carrying the pilgrims in the Anantnag district.


The incident occurred at 8.20 p.m. yesterday when the bus, carrying 17 pilgrims from Baltal to Mir Bazar, became victim to the terrorist attack.
Reportedly, the bus was neither a part of a convoy nor registered with the shrine board.


The 90th and 40th battalion of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) was rushed to the spot. (ANI)
