16 Hindu Pilgrims Killed In Bus Crash n India

16 Hindu pilgrims killed in bus crash in India-held Kashmir




At least 16 Hindu pilgrims were killed and several injured in a bus accident in Kashmir, police said.

The bus carrying the pilgrims to the Himalayan cave was respected as the residence of Shiba. Hundreds of Hindus jumped on the annual pilgrimage to the valley.

State police said in a statement, "16 confirmed deaths, 19 injured and 8 injured."

Some of the worst casualties were transferred to the hospital, but some were taken to local hospitals for treatment.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed his condolences to the dead pilgrims after the trip.

"The J & K suffered extreme suffering from the loss of the life of the pilgrims Amarnath Yatris because of the bus accident.

"My thoughts are with the family of the deceased," he said.

Another Hindu pilgrim died on Sunday when injured six days ago when an unidentified gunman set fire on a bus full of worshipers on the same sacred visit.

Police chief SP Vaid told AFP, "A woman injured in the July 10 attack was injured in the hospital.

Her death came from eight attacks on Monday, with seven women and one man murdered in late - night attacks. Most of the victims were from the West of Gujarat.

Leaders of India and separatists of the Kashmiri have been accused of blaming this latest attack. No group has yet claimed responsibility.

Authorities said the two-month pilgrimage will continue despite the bus attack, which is not part of the official convoy carrying the pilgrims.

Tens of thousands of Hindus throughout India travel to Kashmir each year to visit migrating ice formations in the Amarnath cave, which is worshiped every year as a symbol of Shiva, the god of destruction of Hinduism.

A cave that is 12,800 feet high and accessible on foot or by horse is considered a symbol of religious unity in unstable areas.

Ice formation is believed to have been discovered by Muslim shepherds who became custodians of the temple with two Hindu priests in 1850.
