Reasi Terror Attack: The interrogation of an arrested accused in the attack on a bus carrying pilgrims in Jammu and Kashmir's Reasi last month has pointed towards the role of Pakistan-based handlers of banned terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba, news agency PTI reported on Tuesday, citing officials.

At least nine people lost their lives and 41 others sustained injuries on June 9 after terrorists opened fire at a 53-seater bus, which was on its way from the Shiv Khori temple to the Mata Vaishno Devi shrine in Katra, causing it to veer off the road and fall into a deep gorge in Reasi.

The interrogation of the accused was carried out by the National Investigation Agency (NIA). According to NIA officials, at least three terrorists could have been involved in the attack on the bus, PTI reported. The interrogation of Hakam Khan, alias Hakin Din, has revealed that he provided shelter, logistics, and food to the terrorists, they said.
