Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday held a security review meeting in the wake of a terror attack on Amarnath pilgrims in Kashmir that left seven persons dead on Monday evening.

The meeting was called to look into possible security lapses that may have led to the attack on a bus that was carrying pilgrims from Gujarat.

Seven persons were killed and 19 others injured on Monday evening when militants opened fire at the bus carrying Amarnath Yatra pilgrims in Jammu and Kashmir’s Anantnag district.
