It was the CRPF convoy that was targeted by a JeM suicide bomber on Srinagar-Jammu highway on Thursday. A total of 40 jawans lost their lives in on the most deadliest terror attacks on the border state.

Meanwhile, former Army Chief, Bikram Singh said that terrorists are changing tactics. He noted that IED has been used after a long time, which were used in the past.

“It shows change in tactics of terrorists. Improvised explosive device (IED) has been used after a long time, IEDs were used in the past, in 2001-2002 when I was there, this was a normal practice of terrorists, and then they resorted to firing from distance,” Singh told ANI.

The Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terror group has claimed responsibility for the attack that took place about 20 km from Srinagar. Police identified the suicide bomber as Adil Ahmad Dar, who officials said joined the Jaish in 2018.

Meanwhile, India has announced to withdraw the ‘Most-Favoured Nation’ status accorded to Pakistan following the Pulwama terror attack. New Delhi said that it will take all steps to ensure complete isolation of the neighbouring country globally.

In a hard-hitting statement, Prime Minister Narendra Modi warned Pakistan that it cannot weaken India by orchestrating attacks such as the one on CRPF jawans in Pulwama. PM Modi said those responsible will pay a very heavy price and security forces will be given a free hand to deal with terrorists.
