Kashmir is on the boil again. Today afternoon, the 54 Battalion of CRPF was targeted by the terrorists as their vehicle was attacked with an IED blast in which at least 13 Central Reserve Police Force jawans were killed and many others injured in the blast.
The blast was triggered by militants to target two vehicles carrying the CRPF jawans. The blast ripped through one of the buses the jawans were traveling in.
Militant group Jaish-e-Mohammad claimed responsibility for the blast and said it was a fidayeen attack carried out by local youth. Police identified the terrorist as Adil Ahmad from Kakapora in Pulwama who joined the Jaish-Mohammed in 2018.
