Just two days after the deadly Pulwama attack, a major was killed in an IED blast near the LoC in Jammu Kashmir’s Nowshera sector. The incident happened just after Home Minister Rajnath Singh met RAW chief AK Dhasmana, Additional Director IB Arvind Kumar, Union Home Secretary Rajiv Gauba and NSA Ajit Doval, where they talked about the security situation of the country.
The meeting has been called in the wake of the ghastly Pulwama terror attack that took place on Thursday. Nearly 40 CRPF personnel were killed in Awantipora in an attack orchestrated by Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM).
A day after the attack, the Centre announced the withdrawal of Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status granted to Pakistan. As many as 48 countries have extended support to India, condemning the dastardly act. The convoy of 78 buses, in which around 2500 CRPF personnel were travelling from Jammu to Srinagar, came under attack at around 3.15 pm at Ladhu Modi Lethpora on February 14.
According to news agencies, two army personnel, including a major, were also killed in an IED attack in the same sector on January 11.
More details awaited
