Four terrorist outfits, which had threatened passengers against travelling by the Srinagar-Muzaffarabad bus, claimed responsibility for the suicide attack on the Tourist Reception Centre in Srinagar on Wednesday.

The Road to Peace

Officials said the passengers, who were put up in the centre, were safe.

A caller introducing himself as Sameer Abdullah, spokesman for Al-nasireen, Al-arifeen, Save Kashmir Movement and Farzandan-e-Millat outfits telephoned news agencies claiming responsibility for the attack.

He said a two-member special squad carried out the attack. The caller said the attack was part of their efforts to scuttle government efforts to harm their "freedom struggle".

The spokesman said more such attacks would be carried out.

On March 30, the four outfits issued a statement warning people selected to travel on the first and second bus to Muzaffarabad not to enter the coffin. 'If they do, they will find their names in the list of traitors,' the message said.

The threat was renewed on Tuesday.
