Jharkhand CM condemns attack on Amarnath pilgrims

Press Trust of India  |  Ranchi 

Chief Minister has condemned the terror attack on Amarnath pilgrims in Anantnag, terming it as a "highly cowardly act".

"The terror attack on Amarnath pilgrims is a highly cowardly act. The terrorists will not be spared for this inhuman act," Das said yesterday.

He said, he was praying to God to provide strength to the affected families in this difficult time.

The chief minister also wished speedy recovery of the injured.

Terrorists last night killed seven Amarnath pilgrims, including six women, and injured 19 others as they struck at a bus in Anantnag district, in the worst attack on the annual pilgrimage since 2001.
