PULWAMA ATTACK 5TH ANNIVERSARY: The Pulwama attack, which occurred on February 14, 2019, remains a somber reminder of the challenges faced in the fight against terrorism. On that fateful day, a suicide bomber targeted a CRPF convoy in Pulwama, resulting in the tragic loss of 40 brave personnel. The convoy, carrying over 2,500 jawans, was returning from leave or heading to deployment areas when the attack took place.

In the aftermath, Prime Minister Narendra Modi vowed that those responsible would face the consequences, stating that the security forces had been granted full freedom to determine the timing, location, and nature of the response.

This resolve was evident when, twelve days later, the Indian Air Force conducted airstrikes on a Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) camp in Balakot, Pakistan.

The attack spurred nationwide protests and prompted extensive diplomatic efforts to designate JeM chief Masood Azhar as a global terrorist. These efforts bore fruit when, on May 1, 2019, China lifted its technical hold on a proposal in the UN Security Council, leading to Azhar’s designation.

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) played a crucial role in unravelling the plot behind the Pulwama attack.

In August 2020, it filed a comprehensive chargesheet against 19 individuals, including Azhar, based on electronic evidence and testimonies of terrorists and their associates.

As we commemorate the anniversary of the Pulwama attack, we honour the sacrifice of the fallen heroes and reaffirm our commitment to combating terrorism in all its forms.
