Pankit condemns the attack

He added, “My heart goes out to all the victims and their families who have been affected by this brutal attack. It is devastating to think that people’s lives are being torn apart by such acts of violence. Jammu & Kashmir has always been a land of unparalleled beauty, but these incidents tarnish its reputation and disturb the peace that the region yearns for. Attack in Jammu Reasi is yet another reminder that we must stand united against such acts of cowardice and evil.”
