Two students were injured as stone pelters targeted a private school bus in Shopian district of Jammu and Kashmir on Wednesday.

According to media reports, the bus, which came under attack of the miscreants, belonged to Rainbow International School.

A group of miscreants pelted stones on the bus of Rainbow High School at Zavoora in Shopian, resulting in injuries to two students.

The local police have taken cognisance of the incident and an investigation has been initiated in the case. Jammu-Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti condemned the attack and said the perpetrators will be punished. "The perpetrators of this senseless & cowardly act will be brought to justice". And some weeks ago, a mob attacked a tourist bus at Awantipora in south Kashmir's Pulwama district and threw stones at it, injuring two women from Uttar Pradesh.

Speaking to news agency ANI, father of one of the injured students said, "My son has been injured in stone pelting. The moment we know who they are they will be arrested", he said. "These criminals will face the law.", wrote the DGP (J&K) on his twitter handle.

Opposition National Conference leader Omar Abdullah, meanwhile, said such attacks deserve "unequivocal condemnation". The injured student studies in class 2 at the school. The protesters, however, claimed that the school bus passed through their protest zone, and that the school bus was not targeted specifically.

He added: "The amnesty granted to stone-pelters was meant to encourage more reasonable behaviour but some of these goons are determined to use the opportunity given to them to just pelt more stones". CNN-News18 further said that the police will speak to school authorities in vulnerable areas to provide safe passage to buses carrying school children.
