Gonda/Balrampur (UP), June 10

Two persons from Uttar Pradesh's Balrampur district were among the nine victims of the deadly terror attack on a bus carrying pilgrims in Jammu and Kashmir's Reasi district, officials said on Monday.

Among the 41 injured in the Sunday evening attack, 10 are from Balrampur district and eight from Gonda district, they said.

District Magistrate of Balrampur Arvind Singh said 12 devotees from the district had gone on a pilgrimage to the Mata Vaishno Devi shrine in Jammu. Ruby and Anurag Verma, both children, from Kandhbhari village died while 10 were injured and have been admitted to hospitals in Jammu, the Balrampur district magistrate said, adding the sub-divisional magistrates of Uttaraula and Balrampur have been instructed to contact the affected families and provide them help.
