One of this week’s most significant stories was the attack on Amarnath pilgrims. A yatri bus and a police party were attacked in Anantnag along the Jammu-Srinagar Highway. Seven Amarnath pilgrims were killed while twelve including three policemen were injured after militants attacked on Monday. The Hafta team discusses the Indian media coverage on it. Hartosh Singh Bal, political editor of The Caravan, joins the regular Hafta gang, that is, Abhinandan Sekhri, Madhu Trehan, Anand Ranganathan and Manisha Pande to discuss this and the FIR against AIB's Tanmay Bhat. We also discuss the Bihar Grand Alliance's wobbly status and what it may lead to. Hartosh constantly disagrees with Abhinandan on various topics as they take the debate forward.
