Jaish-e-Mohammad Militant Adil Ahmad Dar targeted the CRPF Convoy of 70 vehicles on Thursday afternoon at around 3.15 pm in Pulwama, south Kashmir. The Suicide Bomber rammed the SUV carrying 300 kgs of explosives into the bus in which 39 Jawans were travelling. 44 CRPF Jawans were killed in the deadly explosion carried out by the Terror Outfit. The death toll is expected to rise because of the high intensity of the blast.
The spot where the suicide bombing took place resembled like a war zone with the bus in an unrecognizable condition and body parts scattered all around. Video Footage of the vehicle debris and body parts has gone viral now. Somebody who was at the spot when the explosion happened has captured the footage using a smartphone.
Militants attacked the 78-vehicle convoy carrying 2,547 security personnel from Jammu to Srinagar with a perfect plan. Although Army Officials ruled out security lapse, Criticism kept growing on shifting such huge number of Jawans at once due to the high death toll. Army defended the move citing there wasn't much traffic movement in the area since few days due to climatic conditions.
