Injured CRPF jawans were attacked by stone pelters following the Pulwama terror attack which claimed the lives of 38 soldiers.

As per journalist Gaurav Savant, CRPF jawans present in the convoy rushed out of their vehicles after the IED attack and formed a protective cordon around the blast site.

They added that it was done to protect the injured jawans from stone pelting which began following the suicide attack. The jawans also spoke about how angry they were after the attack and their intention to target terrorists.

It was reported that a CRPF bus part of a 78 vehicle strong convoy moving from Jammu to Srinagar was rammed by an IED laden SUV in an Islamist suicide terror attack.

Pakistan based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) has taken responsibility for the terror attack. Pakistan’s all weather friend China has repeatedly blocked India’s attempt to bring international sanctions against JeM chief Masood Azhar.

Intelligence reports have claimed that Azhar’s nephew Mohammed Umair is the prime suspect behind the attack.

Umair is the son of Azhar’s elder brother Athar Ibrahim. He is believed to be currently operating in the Pulwama area in South Kashmir after having undergone terrorist training in Afghanistan.
