Reasi (J-K), Jun 11 (PTI) Undeterred by the terrorist attack on a pilgrim bus that left nine dead Sunday evening, devotees keep steaming in to visit the Shiv Khori temple as usual, reposing faith in the security forces and the god.

On Tuesday, devotees were seen making a brief stopover near the site of the incident near Teryath village of the Poni area and raised slogans like ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ and ‘Bharatiya Sena Zindabad’ and praying for the dead.

“We came to know about the terror attack through news but decided to continue our journey to have darshan of Mata Rani (Vaishno Devi),” Parmeela Bajaj, a part of a 20-member group from Maharashtra, told PTI.

The group was on its way to Shiv Khori temple after praying at Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine when it stopped at the scene of Sunday’s terror attack to have a look at the spot where the attacked bus still lay in a gorge.

“Whatever happened was terrible. The dead included a two-year-old boy and his mother … We pray for the departed souls,” Bajaj said.
