    Senior Superintendent of Police Mohita Sharma of Reasi provided further details, explaining that initial reports indicated the terrorists targeted the passenger bus specifically. “Due to the firing, the bus driver lost balance and the bus fell into the gorge.

    Thirty-three people were injured in the incident. The rescue operation has been completed, and the identities of the passengers are still being confirmed. They are not locals. The Shiv Khori shrine was secured, and area domination was done,” she told ANI.

    Visual evidence from the scene depicted a grim picture, with bodies scattered along the hillside and the bus severely damaged. Residents played a crucial role in the immediate rescue efforts, assisting the authorities and lining up ambulances for the injured.

    The police, army, and paramilitary forces were promptly deployed to the site, ensuring security and aiding in the ongoing investigation. This attack represents a significant escalation in violence in the region, particularly in the Reasi district, which has previously been relatively unaffected by terrorist activities compared to neighbouring areas like Rajouri and Poonch.
