Pulwama attack: 44 CRPF soldier martyred; Home Minister Rajnath Singh to visit Kashmir to take stock of the situation

More than 2,500 Central Reserve Police Force personnel were ambushed on the Srinagar-Jammu highway at Latoomode in Awantipora in south Kashmir around 3.15 pm on Thursday

The death toll in the horrific terrorist attack sponsored by the terrorist state of Pakistan has reached 44, making it one of the deadliest terrorist attacks in the history of Jammu and Kashmir.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said the sacrifices of “our brave security personnel shall not go in vain”, people across the country have demanded the strongest possible action against the dastardly terrorist attack.

“Attack on CRPF personnel in Pulwama is despicable. I strongly condemn this dastardly attack. The sacrifices of our brave security personnel shall not go in vain. The entire nation stands shoulder to shoulder with the families of the brave martyrs. May the injured recover quickly,” tweeted Prime Minister Modi.

Meanwhile, Home Minister Singh is also expected to visit Srinagar today. Rajnath Singh will also hold review meetings with senior security and police officials to make the ground-level assessment and review further operational actions.

The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) in an official statement held Pakistan responsible for aiding terrorist attack and added that the JeM founder Maulana Masood Azhar had been “given the freedom to target India.”

The Cabinet Committee on Security (CSS), the highest decision-making body of the government, is scheduled to meet at 9:15 am today. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will chair the meeting, which is expected to be attended by Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and EAM Sushma Swaraj among others.

Meanwhile, the international community, including the US, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Russia, and Bangladesh have condemned the dastardly attack on Indian security personnel.

A terrorist belonging to Pakistani Army backed Islamic terrorist outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad, identified as Adil Ahmad Dar, rammed an SUV laden with over 300 kg of explosives into the CRPF bus carrying about 40 personnel. The collision exploded the bus and the vehicle, causing the deaths of more than 40 CRPF soldiers.

More than 2,500 Central Reserve Police Force personnel, many of them returning from leave to rejoin duty in the Kashmir Valley, were travelling in the convoy of 70 vehicles when they were ambushed on the Srinagar-Jammu highway at Latoomode in Awantipora in south Kashmir around 3.15 pm on Thursday.
