    Amarnath attack: Lashkar-e-Taiba over-ground workers tailed pilgrims for 2 days

    The OGWs had been tailing this group from Gujarat comprising mostly women for the last two days and tipped off the terrorists to attack the group when there was no security around," top government sources told Mail Today

    The bus had separated from the security convoy at around 8.30am and was under watch of terrorists till it was attacked at 8.20pm, the security forces informed the Centre.
    The sources said the main targets of terrorists were women and there were inputs that pilgrims from Gujarat and Uttar Pradesh would be on their radar.

    Sources told Mail Today that the batch of terrorists who attacked the bus from both sides have been identified. Officials confirm that they have not slipped out of the country and it is only a matter of time before they are trapped or killed.
    According to an official, what is more worrying is that Ismail apart from activating his over-ground operatives also got in touch with some locals of the Hizbul Mujahideen. The cadres of the Hizbul had helped in logistics, which were shared with Lashkar. The local Hizbul operatives are more familiar with the territory.

    The probe also shows that the Lashkar wanted to take some of the pilgrims hostage. A reconnaissance of the route was conducted for three days. The plan was to barge into the bus, kill as many as possible and also take a few captive, investigations so far have revealed.
