Post the terror attack more than 4,000 pilgrims left for the Amarnath cave shrine yesterday from Jammu, as per PTI reports, while on the day of terror attack 2,430 pilgrims left Jammu for the high altitude cave shrine.

Confirming the developments, Superintendent of Police (SP) Shopian, Ambarkar Shriram Dinkar, said "Touseef was cooperating with the investigators".

Touseef Ahmad, a policeman from the security wing of Jammu and Kashmir Police and Wachhi legislator Aijaz Ahmad Mir's driver, was detained for questioning two days ago.

The PDP-BJP Govt. has been soft peddling on terror since it assumed office in the state which brought to situation to this level, he said adding, "attempts at damage control immediately after the attack, which amounts to transfer of responsibility is also questionable".
