Pakistan backed Jaish-e-Mohammed claims responsibility for Pulwama IED terror attack, in a text message to Kashmiri News Agency GNS, reported ANI. At least 12 CRPF personnel were killed in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district on Thursday, 14 February when a blast ripped through the bus they were travelling in.
Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala slammed PM Modi saying this is the 18th big terror attack under his government. “We strongly condemn this cowardly attack, we extend condolences to the kin of the jawans who were martyred. This is the 18th big terror attack in the last five years under this Modi government. When will the 56-inch chest reply?” he said.
Former J&K CM Mehbooba Mufti said that all parties must come together to find a solution. “I don’t have enough words to condemn this attack. Border skirmishes and surgical strikes are leading to nothing. NDA government and all political parties must come together and reach a solution to end this bloodshed,” she said.
In a statement from the J&K Raj Bhavan, Governor Satyapal Malik observed forces responsible for the insurgency in J&K are desperate and frustrated and just want to prove presence. He also said that the attack seems to be guided from across border as Jaish-e-Mohammad has claimed responsibility.
Malik urged all the Security Forces Commanders to enhance surveillance on every front and directed the District and Divisional Civil and Police Administration to immediately review the security management of all important installations and establishments.
Condolences poured in from various ministers
