March 8, 2019
In a shocking incident, one person was killed and 30 others were seriously injured in a grenade attack at Jammu and Kashmir. According to the police, the incident happened on Thursday morning at Jammu and Kashmir bus stand injuring mostly drivers and bus conductors. The entire area has been cordoned off by cops. Unfortunately, the government failed to tamper the efforts of yet another terror strike.
I condemn this act of terror in the strongest possible terms. My prayers for speedy recovery of those injured. The perpetrators are out there to inflict pain and divide us. Our unity has to be our tool to defeat them-Mehbooba Mufti, Former Chief Minister, Jammu & Kashmir
Reportedly, this is the third terrorist attack at the bus stand since last May. Authorities have not identified which terror group is behind the attack. Clearly, this latest attack is aimed at tampering the communal harmony and peace at the valley. It is also aimed at deteriorating tensions between India and Pakistan that is already going through a rough patch.
This latest terror attack comes nearly after a month of the Pulwama terror attack that killed 40 CRPF jawans. Pakistani based Jaish-e-Mohammed was responsible for the attacks to which India retaliated through air strikes demolishing Jaish-e-Mohammed camps in Pakistan.
"Deeply saddened and strongly condemn the grenade attack in #Jammu bus stand. It is very unfortunate and shocking that Enemies of peace are hell bent to disturb and damage the social fabric, peace and harmony in #Jammu and #Kashmir. My Prayers for injured", tweeted Guftar Ahmed, a Twitter User.
