Reasi terror attack: Survivors' played dead as terrorists kept firing after bus fell into gorge

PTC Web Desk: The survivors of the Reasi terror attack on Monday informed authorities and the media that terrorists continued to fire at them even after their bus crashed into a deep gorge, forcing them to pretend dead.

They narrated their terrifying ordeal, claiming that the attackers intended to kill everyone on the bus, which was carrying Hindu pilgrims to Vaishno Devi from Jammu and Kashmir's Shiv Khori.


Nine people are reported dead with 33 injured. According to the authorities, the attackers opened fire on the bus from multiple directions. The bus plummeted into the gorge after the driver was struck by a bullet.

"After having darshan at Mata Vaishno Devi, I visited Shiv Khori. Bullets were fired on our bus when we returned from there, after around 4-5 kilometres. Even after our bus had fallen into the ditch, the firing continued. The driver was shot, and some other individuals were also injured in the firing," one survivor informed.

An eyewitness informed a media outlet that 6-7 terrorists attacked the bus as bullets rained from all directions.

When the bus plummeted into the gorge and the terrorists continued to fire, the passengers remained silent to fool them into believing they were dead, according to an eyewitness.

The security forces stationed in Jammu and Kashmir started a huge cordon-and-search operation to track out the terrorists responsible for the attack.
