PULWAMA AGAIN .. Security forces thwart another Pulwama attack, driver of bomb-laden car escapes from checkpost


SRINAGAR: What would have been a repeat of Pulwama terror attack on a CRPF convoy in 2019 has been averted by timely action by the security forces in Kashmir Valley on Thursday morning. A car carrying 20kg of improvised explosive device (IED) was intercepted by the forces, but the driver made good his escape, officials said.
A while Hyundai Santro car with fake registration number carried the explosive. Its way was blocked at a checkpoint in Pulwama district, but it tried to accelerate and drive away by hitting the barricade. The security forces opened fire, but the driver managed to run away, as per information reaching here.
It was a joint operation of the army, police and paramilitary forces, officials said.

It appears the state police had got a tip off about what was being planned a day ago, and was on the alert. The car was destroyed along with the explosives by a bomb disposal squad. The huge explosion damaged several houses in the vicinity, as per reports.
Some 40 CRPF jawans had been killed in the February, 2019 attack, following which India sent in its planes to Balakot near Rawalpindi in Pakistan to hit some terror camps there. How successful was the Indian operation at Balakot is still a debatable point. In subsequent fight over the skies near the LoC, India had lost one fighter jet. ==Agencies, IHN=NN
