44 Indian soldiers killed in Kashmir’s Pulwama car bomb attack

At least 44 Indian paramilitary police personnel were killed and many others injured when their convoy targeted with a car bomb at Awantipora in Indian controlled Kashmir’s Pulwama district on Thursday (today), in what is the worst attack ever on security personnel in the state.
Indian police said that a car filled with explosives rammed a bus carrying the officers to Srinagar, the capital of Indian-administered Kashmir.

The militant group Jaish-e-Mohammad has reportedly said it carried out the bombing.
NDTV reported while quoting Home Ministry sources that ‘terrorists’ triggered the car bomb while 78 vehicles with over 2,500 CRPF men were on the Srinagar-Jammu highway. The stretch on which the incident occurred had been sanitized earlier in the morning, and authorities have termed it as a “serious breach” of security.
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.

Photographs showed charred remains of vehicles and human body parts littered across the highway, alongside blue military buses. Official sources said that the attack was carried out by one Adil Ahmad Dar alias “Waqas Commando”. A resident of Kakapora, he had joined the ‘terror outfit’ last year.
It comes a day after an explosion wounded more than two dozens of schoolchildren in the state. The cause of the blast was not immediately clear.
This is the worst terror attack to take place in Kashmir since the start of the century. On October 1, 2001, three terrorists had rammed a Tata Sumo loaded with explosives into the main gate of the Jammu and Kashmir State Legislative Assembly complex in Srinagar — killing 38 people.
The scale of this terror strike has exceeded even that of the Uri attack on September 2016, when four heavily armed terrorists targeted an army brigade headquarters — causing 19 deaths. The Indian army had responded with a cross-border surgical strike in which several-terror launch pads were destroyed.

This is a developing story and will be updated soon.  Article  Source
