The attack — around 20 kilometres from the city of Srinagar on the main highway to Jammu — reportedly claimed by the banned Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) was the worst in Indian-occupied Kashmir in three decades.
Prime Minister Imran Khan – in an address to the nation – offered India an olive branch and said Islamabad was willing to act upon ‘actionable intelligence’ after sections of the Indian government and media accused the country of being involved in the attack.
