Over 50 suspects were picked up after the Reasi attack

Nine pilgrims from Rajasthan, Delhi, and Uttar Pradesh were killed in Sunday's terror attack when terrorists attacked a bus carrying pilgrims to the cave shrine of Shiv Khori in the Reasi district of Jammu and Kashmir.

Reports said that in the Reasi district security forces have started search operations in the Mahore and Arnas areas after getting inputs about the presence of terrorists in these belts.

Reports said that 50 suspects have been detained for questioning to identify the terrorists involved in attacking pilgrims.

PDP holds protest against recent terror attacks

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) held a protest on Friday against the recent back-to-back terror attacks in the Jammu region.

The PDP leaders demanded an explanation for the "alarming" security situation, contradicting the government's claims of restored peace in the Union Territory.

Between Sunday and Wednesday, terrorists attacked four places in Reasi, Kathua, and Doda districts in Jammu province, resulting in the deaths of ten people, including nine pilgrims and a CRPF jawan. The attacks also injured seven security personnel, 41 pilgrims, and a villager.

"The faith of the people has completely shattered after four terror attacks within 72 hours. Except for giving statements authorities have done nothing to restore the confidence of the people", PDP leaders said and added that recent incidents in Hiranagar, Reasi, and Doda have exposed tall claims of the authorities.
