J&K DGP Shesh Paul Vaid said it was "complete madness how stone-pelters are targeting young school children".

The police has taken cognisance of the incident and a hunt for the miscreants is underway. The 10 injured were admitted to the district hospital but four of them, who sustained bullet injuries, had to be shifted to SMHS hospital in Srinagar.

Former chief minister Omar Abdullah condemned the attack on the school bus.

The attack on school bus followed an attack on tourists on Monday.

The RWB has also urged the new government to take steps to ensure full respect for the "full freedom of the press". Therefore, the safety of journalists must be guaranteed, and press freedom must be strengthened.

The second boy, a Class 2 student, suffered more harsh head injury and has been referred to a better hospital in Srinagar, the police informed. But hasn't this business of amnesty become a periodic occurrence, at times synchronised with clinical precision to violent terrorist incidents.

"Our strength lies in discipline", Geelani said in a statement issued to KNS and added "we should keep strict vigil over those involved in these incidents, saying in resistance movements we need to demonstrate our mature thinking and follow discipline".

Class XI student Liaqat Ali was stabbed during a clash between two groups of students in a college in Billawar area of the district. "I tried my best to save the students but one student got injured", said the driver. "The bus belongs to Rainbow International School", said police officer Shailendra Kumar.

The incident evoked a sharp reaction from Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, who said the perpetrators behind this senseless and cowardly act would be brought to justice. "These criminals will face the law". "These attacks deserve our unequivocal condemnation".
