"Strongly condemn horrific attack on #AmarnathYatra pilgrims by terrorists at Anantnag. Such dastardly act should not go unpunished," the chief minister said in a Twitter post.
Senior BJD leader and Lok Sabha Member Baijayant Panda also condemned the attack on the Amarnath pilgrims terming the incident "despicable beyond words".
Terrorists last night killed seven Amarnath pilgrims, including six women, and injured 32 others as they struck at a bus in Kashmir's Anantnag district.
