New Delhi: Salim, the Gujarati driver of the bus that was ferrying the passengers, has now emerged as a hero by saving so many innocent lives while risking his own.
As per sources, Salim drove the bus to safety amid continuous firing by a group of heavily armed terrorists who attacked the bus which was returning from the Amarnath Shrine.
Despite being reportedly hit by a bullet, Salim locked the door from inside, refraining terrorists from entering into the bus.
Notably, seven pilgrims on the Amarnath Yatra including six women were killed on Monday in a terror attack in Anantnag at about 8:30 pm. At least 19 people were injured in one the worst terror strikes in the state of Jammu and Kashmir.
