New Delhi: A terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama claimed the life of around 40 CRPF Jawans and left several of them injured. Many politicians have expressed their shock at the terror attack. Out of the total, thirteen of the injured are said to be in a critical condition, and have been taken to the army hospital in Srinagar.

The responsibility of the attack was claimed by the terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed.

 

# The President of the Congress party, Rahul Gandhi called it a "cowardly attack". "I'm deeply disturbed by the cowardly attack on a #CRPF convoy in J&K in which 10 of our brave men have been martyred and many others wounded. My condolences to the families of our martyrs. I pray for the speedy recovery of the injured," he wrote in a tweet.

Sources of the Home ministry said that terrorists triggered the car bomb while the convoy of over 70 CRPF vehicles was plying through the Srinagar-Jammu Highway in Goripora area. One of the vehicles bore the brunt of the explosion. The stretch on which the incident occurred was largely believed to be sanitised of terror activities, and the authorities have termed it as a "serious breach" of security.
