Two days after terrorists opened fire at a bus carrying pilgrims in Jammu and Kashmir's Reasi, the police on Tuesday released a sketch of one of the three terrorists involved in the attack.

The police also announced a Rs 20 lakh reward for information about him.

According to the details, the sketch of the terrorist was prepared based on the description given by eyewitnesses.

"Reasi police announce a reward of Rs 20 lakh for any fruitful information about the whereabouts of the terrorist involved in the recent attack on the yatri bus in the area of Pouni," a police spokesman told news agency PTI.

On Sunday, terrorists opened fire at the 53-seater bus carrying pilgrims when it was en route from the Shiv Khori temple to the Mata Vaishno Devi shrine in Katra near Teryath village in the Poni area.

The bus, which was ferrying pilgrims from Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and Delhi, plunged into a deep gorge following the gunfire, killing nine people and injuring 41 others.
