The arrested individuals helped the attackers by providing them transportation facilities, shelter and also undertook reconnaisance missions before the attack, the police said.

Claiming that police have cracked the case in less than a month, Khan said it was "purely a terrorist attack" aimed at creating fear.

Khan identified the four as Ismail, Maviya, Furqan of Pakistan and Yawar Bashir, a local.

As many as seven people were killed and fifteen others injured after a group of terrorists opened fire on a bus carrying 17 pilgrims from Baltal to Mir Bazar earlier on July 11. During the investigation three accused persons namely Bilal Ahmad Reshi, Aijaz Ahmad Wagay Zahoor Ahmad Sheikh have been arrested so far.

Khan said the attack was to be carried out on July 9, but on that day no yatri or CRPF vehicle was moving in isolation.

Three Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) militants were killed on Saturday morning in Amargah area of apple town Sopore. All the accused have been produced before the court and sent to Police remand.

Inspector General of Police (IGP) Kashmir Muneer Khan on Sunday said that Lashkar was involved behind Amarnath attack.

The Special Investigation Team was constituted by the Jammu and Kashmir police to fast track the probe into the sensational terror attack that took place on July 10.

Asked if the militants wanted a flare-up of communal tension by attacking the pilgrims, Khan said the pilgrims weren't the focus of the attack.

The officer said that the police are closing in on main accused and will neutralise them soon.

The IGP said the militants had chosen two targets, CRPF vehicle or a Yatri vehicle, as they had code named the both. "They had planned for a CRPF vehicle or a pilgrim bus". Sources said that the trio hatched a plan with Abu Ismail to attack Amarnath Yatra. The attack evoked widespread condemnation across the Valley and outside.
