The anti-terror agency took over the case from the Jammu and Kashmir Police on June 15 and filed a new First Information Report (FIR) in response to Ministry of Home Affairs orders taking cognisance of the gravity of the incident, in which attackers targeted a bus carrying pilgrims on June 9 evening.


Following the terrorist attack in the Reasi district of Jammu and Kashmir on June 9 evening, a bus carrying pilgrims fell into a gorge, killing at least nine people and injuring 33 others.

A day after the attack, an NIA team visited the scene to help local police and assess the situation.
