It is a terror attack that is being compared to Uri attack which led to India carrying out surgical strike across the Line of Control into Pakistan Occupied Kashmir.
The CRPF convoy came under attack leading to dozen personnel being martyred while many others getting injured.
Now the state polity including Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah have expressed their shock at the terror attack.
The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) convoy was attacked in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama today in which at least 12 soldiers were killed.
Fifteen of the injured are said to be in a critical condition.
Terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed has claimed responsibility for the attack.
“No words are enough to condemn the gruesome terror attack. How many more lives will be snuffed out before this madness ends?” People’s Democratic Party chief and former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti tweeted.
“I condemn this attack in the strongest possible terms. My prayers for the injured & condolences to the families of the bereaved,” National Conference leader and former chief minister Omar Abdullah tweeted.
Reports suggest that the terrorists triggered the blast while the CRPF personnel were plying through the Srinagar-Jammu highway.
The stretch on which the incident occurred was largely believe to be sanitised of terror activities, and the authorities have termed it as a
“serious breach” of security.
