One year on Pulwama attack invokes painful memories

Entire India erupted with anger and indignation. Every Indian citizen wanted revenge, for they did not want the sacrifices of soldiers to go waste

New Delhi: The blood-curdling attack on Indian soldiers in Pulwama, Jammu and Kashmir, also known as …
as Pulwama attacks, completes one year tomorrow.

Entire India erupted with anger and indignation. Every Indian citizen wanted revenge, for they did not want the sacrifices of soldiers to go waste.

The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) will pay homage on Friday hereby dedicating a martyr’s column to the memory of the jawans who were killed in a suicide attack in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district last year.

The assailants targeted a convoy bus carrying 35-40 men. The convoy consisted of 78 vehicles.

In the attack, 40 CRPF personnel were killed after a Jaish-e-Mohammed suicide bomber attacked their convoy in Pulwama on February 14 last year.

The 20-year-old Adil Ahmed Dar, who carried out the attack, rammed a 350 kg explosive-laden SUV into a CRPF convoy.

CRPF Special Director General Zulfikar Hassan, Inspector General Kashmir Zone Rajesh Kumar, and senior officers and other force personnel will pay homage to the jawans at the CRPF training centre in Pulwama’s Letpora.

A martyr’s column dedicated to the memory of the jawans who laid down their lives in the line of duty will be inaugurated at the function.

“It is going to be a solemn ceremony, a martyr column will be inaugurated with the names of the CRPF jawans who died in the Pulwama attack inscribed on it, a blood donation camp will be also be organised at Letpora,” said Hassan.

He added that the families of the jawans have not been invited. “It is understood that there will be private ceremonies at their residence,”.
