MHA refutes reports claiming that the CRPF convoy was denied the permission to use air transit

An unrelated document related to BSF was also being spread as proof that CRPF was denied air transit

Ministry of Home Affairs has refuted the rumours that the government did not allow air transit facility to the CRPF convoy which came under a suicide attack by Jaish-e-Muhammad at Pulwama on February 14.

Soon after the deadly terrorist attack on the convoy in Pulwama leaving 42 CRPF personnel dead, the reports of the CRPF convoy having been denied the permission to avail the air transport services, started coming out from a section of the media. The reports suggested that the terrorist attack could be avoided if the convoy was allowed to use air transit.

Also, a certain document of the MHA was also being circulated over social media as a proof of the denial of the permission by the MHA to allow the air transit to the CRPF convoy. But the document was actually related to the request made by the BSF for keeping MI-17 Helicopters for two months in Jammu and Kashmir, and nowhere did it mention about the CRPF. Moreover, it can be seen that the BSF was informed that they can request air transit when required, only the request for the stationing of helicopters for two months was denied.

Finally putting an end to the rumours, the MHA issued a clarification dismissing the misleading reports as untrue.
