40 CRPF Jawans were martyred on Thursday as the convoy they were traveling in, on the Jammu-Srinagar highway, was attacked by a suicide bomber in an explosives-laden car. The Pakistan-backed Jaish-e-Mohammad has claimed responsibility for what has become the worst terror attack on the forces in many decades, drawing condemnation from across the world. India has revoked Pakistan's Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status and also approached diplomatic missions of numerous countries to isolate Pakistan globally. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has said that there is incontrovertible evidence of Pakistan's hand being behind the attack, while PM Modi has assured that the sacrifices of the CRPF Jawans would not go in vain and that a free hand has been given to the security forces to avenge the attack.
Several Bollywood actors including Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, Ranveer Singh, Vicky Kaushal, Ayushmann Khurrana, Aamir Khan, Ajay Devgn, Priyanka Chopra, Anupam Kher, and Preity Zinta among others have also expressed their shock and outrage over the incident.
