According to the reports, massive anti-Pakistan protests took place in various areas of Jammu with people taking to the streets, including Jewel Chowk, Purani Mundi, Rehari, Shaktinagar, Pacca Danga, Janipur, Gandhinagar and Bakshinagar. The city of Jammu was completely shut down, with no traffic on roads and all shops and markets closed.

“We have imposed curfew in Jammu city as a precautionary measure,” Deputy Commissioner of Jammu Ramesh Kumar told news agency PTI.

Reportedly, there were mob attacks in Gujjar Nagar area where several vehicles were damaged by stone-throwers. However, the police said they had managed to prevent a major clash. At least 15 vehicles bearing registration number of Kashmiris were set ablaze by a mob before they were stopped by police.

Kashmiri employees at Jammu’s Tourist Reception Centre have sent emergency messages to police seeking protection after angry citizens burnt vehicles outside TRC and pelted stones at few Kashmiris. Raising slogans against Pakistan and terrorists, protesters burnt tyres on roads. Demonstrators put up barricades demanding that the attacks be avenged.

Earlier, the Jammu Chamber of Commerce and Industries (JCCI) had on Thursday called for a shutdown in Jammu protesting terror attack. Protesting the Pulwama attack, the Jammu and Kashmir High Court Bar Association, Jammu, suspended work in all the courts in Jammu, including the high court and tribunals.

Internet services have been suspended in Jammu as a precautionary measure to avoid law and order situation, said an official.

Meanwhile, 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. A terrorist belonging to Pakistani Army backed Islamic terrorist outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad, identified as Adil Ahmad Dar, rammed an SUV laden with over 3000 kg of explosives into a CRPF bus carrying about 40 personnel, which was part of a large convoy. The collision exploded the bus and the vehicle, causing the deaths of more than 40 CRPF soldiers.

The Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday, after chairing a Cabinet Committee on Security meeting with his top ministers, said Pakistan will have to pay a heavy price for the terror attack in Pulwama. “The forces behind this act of terrorism & those responsible for it will definitely be punished,” he said.

The government has also announced that it will withdraw the most favoured nation tag given to Pakistan, and it will work towards isolating the country at the global level.
