Amarnath Yatra terror attack: List of 7 killed and 19 injured pilgrims in Monday night's assault

Militants in Kashmir on Monday killed seven Amarnath pilgrims, including six women, and injured 19 others as they attacked a bus in Kashmir's Anantnag district, in the worst attack on the annual pilgrimage since 2001.

Five of those killed were from Gujarat and two from Maharashtra. The deceased from Gujarat have been identified as Hasube Ratila Patal, Surakha Ben and Lakshimiben S Patal from Valsad, Ratan Zeena Bhai Patal of Daman and Prajapati Champaben Navsari, a Jammu and Kashmir police spokesperson said.

Those from Maharashtra were Nirmala Ben Thakor, a resident of Palghar, and Usha Mohanla Sonkar of Danu. Police said that 19 pilgrims were injured in the attack and added that their condition was stable.

The bus bearing the registration number GJ09Z 9976 was attacked at around 8.20 pm near Khanabal when it was on its way from Srinagar to Jammu, police said. A security official said the victims had performed the yatra two days ago and had subsequently moved to Srinagar.
