The Pulwama attacks, in which 40 CRPF bravehearts were killed in one of the deadliest attacks on Indian security forces, are considered a “black day” in India. On February 14, 2004, India came to a halt when the deaths of 40 CRPF officers were broadcast on our televisions. In one of the worst terror attacks, a suicide bomber from Jaish-e-Mohammad drove an explosive-laden vehicle into a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) convoy. On February 14, 2019, a scene of devastation caused by a terror attack occurred in the afternoon.

Here’s a timeline of the Pulwama terror attack:

To honour these soldiers, a memorial was erected inside a CRPF camp near where Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorist Adeel Ahmed Dar drove an explosive-laden car and blew himself up next to a CRPF convoy, killing 40 personnel.

In Jammu and Kashmir, a suicide bomber targeted two buses carrying forty members of the CRPF. The buses were part of a larger group of paramilitary vehicles travelling along the highway in the Pulwama district of south Kashmir.

Adil Ahmad Dar, a local Kashmiri jihadist who lived in Gundibagh, Kakapora, in the Pulwama district of south Kashmir, claimed to be the suicide bomber.
