Pulwama attack: Death toll reaches 44 | internet services suspended in jammu kashmir

Pulwama Attack


The number of people killed in the Pulwama attack has reached 44, which is one of the deadliest terrorist attacks in the history of Jammu and Kashmir. The convoy of around 2,500 CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force) jawans targeted the suicide attacker of Jaish-e-Mohammad, Adil Ahmed Dar. He was driving an SUV, in which about 200 kg of IED was explosive.

The vehicle got into one of the buses carrying the soldiers, causing many parts of the body to spread in the surrounding area.


While Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that “our brave guardians will not be wasted”, people across the country have demanded the strongest possible action against the brutal terrorist attack.

Anti-Pakistan protests have rocked the winter capital of Jammu and Kashmir. After the attack, the display and candle light were marching. While wreaking havoc in the rain, many people came out on the streets in Javor Chowk, Old Mandi, Rehdi, Janipur, Gandhinagar, Bakshi Nagar, Muthi, Talab, Tillu and Satwari, and protested against the killings.

In the forensic assessment of the spot, a NIA team will leave for Kashmir today with appropriate forensic component for the assistance of the Jammu and Kashmir Police. Mobile Internet services have also been suspended in Jammu for security concerns.

“We strongly condemn today’s attack in Pulwama of Jammu and Kashmir, we express deep sympathy for the families of those who have lost their lives for the people of India and the Indian government.” To be judged, The United Nations said in a statement.



This was the first suicide car bomb attack in Kashmir since the 2001 Legislative Assembly Strike, in which 41 people, including three suicide bombers, were killed.

The scene of Thursday’s attack is not far from the commando training center in Lethpora, in which the JI’s militants killed five CRPF personnel on December 31, 2017.

Srinagar-Jammu National Highway has been the preferred route for the militants to target the security forces. In June 2016, the CRPF suffered the brunt of a terrorist attack in Pampore, less than seven km from Lehpora, and eight others were injured, while 22 others were injured.

In September 2016, in the attack on the Uri military base, Jaish’s terrorists killed 18 army soldiers and injured dozens more. Due to the attack, India made a surgical strike against Pakistan.
