New Delhi: Seven people on the Amarnath Yatra were killed as militants opened fire in Anantnag in Jammu and Kashmir on Monday. The Amarnath pilgrims were travelling in a bus from Balram to Mir Bazar in Jammu and Kashmir.

“Reportedly the bus was neither a part of convoy nor registered with shrine board. Troops of 90 Bn & 40 battalion of the CRPF were rushed to the spot,” said a senior CRPF official.

The militant attack comes a day after the Amarnath Yatra was resumed from Jammu on Sunday after a day-long suspension due to apprehensions of a law-and-order situation in the Kashmir Valley.
