Pulwama attack: Women, children in Kashmir ferried expensive military grade RDX in small quantities for months

Several other CRPF personnel who were present at the site during the incident had recounted the horror after they had revealed that there was intense stone pelting following the Pulwama terror attack.

Women and children were hired to help Islamic terrorists to transport the deadly explosive RDX grade 5 (for military use) and ammonium nitrate from transit point in Tral, Pulwama district of south Kashmir to carry out a suicide attack on a CRPF convoy on February 14, reported Times Now.

According to the reports, the trigger for the explosive was manufactured locally and that ammonium nitrate was used as an oxidiser in the RDX explosive. The military grade A5 RDX was obtained from Pakistan and the device was assembled around 10 km from the blast site, the report said.

As per reports, the explosives were carried by women and children in the valley in small quantities over a period of several months. Military grade RDX is mixed with high quality stearic or octadecanoic acid. An A5 grade RDX reportedly denotes with a 98.5% to 99.5% purity and is very expensive.

As per a report in Zee News, the RDX used in Pulwama attack was mixed with Ammonium nitrate and shrapnel for maximum impact. It was carried in 3 drums in the SUV. It is because of the quality of the RDX and the expertise of handling the operation that the involvement of the Pakistani military is being suspected.

On February 14, 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.

Several other CRPF personnel who were present at the site during the incident had recounted the horror after they had revealed that there was intense stone pelting following the Pulwama terror attack. CRPF jawans in other vehicles had to rush to the spot to form a protective cordon around the blast site and to protect the injured jawans from stone pelting which began following the suicide attack.

More than 2,500 Central Reserve Police Force personnel, many of them returning from leave to rejoin duty in the Kashmir Valley, were traveling in the convoy of 78 vehicles when they were ambushed on the Srinagar-Jammu highway at Latoomode in Awantipora in south Kashmir around 3.15 pm on Thursday.

However, top Jaish-e-Mohammad commander linked with the recent Pulwama terror attack which claimed the lives of 40 CRPF personnel has been killed by the security forces after an encounter between the security forces and Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists. Abdul Rasheed Ghazi, the mastermind of the Pulwama terror attack was also killed in an encounter with security forces on Monday. He was among three terrorists who were killed in the joint operation by security forces.
