Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar today strongly condemned the "despicable attack" by terrorists on Amarnath pilgrims in Kashmir.

In a statement issued here, he said, "I strongly condemn this most despicable act of cowardice, the perpetrators of which killed seven unsuspecting yatris. They will never succeed in their diabolical designs."
