Jaipur: The bodies of four people, including a two-year-old boy, killed in a horrific terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir's Reasi, arrived by train in Jaipur on Tuesday, police said.

Among the nine killed, in one of the deadliest terror attacks in Reasi, were cloth merchant Rajendra Saini (42), his wife Mamta (40), their relative Pooja Saini (30) and her two-year-old son. 

The militants opened fire at a bus carrying pilgrims in Jammu's Reasi district on Sunday evening, following which the vehicle plunged into a deep gorge. The Resistance Front (TRF), an offshoot of Pakistan-based terrorist group Lashkar-e-Taiba, claimed responsibility for the attack.

The 53-seater bus, on its way from the Shiv Khori temple to Katra, veered off the road following the barrage of gunfire and fell into a deep gorge near the Teryath village of the Poni area.

Pooja Saini's husband Pavan (32) has been injured, a police officer said.

While Rajendra and Mamta were residents of Chomu town in Jaipur district, Pooja was the resident of Ajmera ki Dhani in the Harmada area on Chomu road.

Locals staged a dharna outside the Chomu police station on Tuesday, demanding government jobs and compensation to the family of Rajendra and Mamta, who are survived by their two sons and a daughter. Rajendra was the sole earning member of the family.
