Nearly 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel were killed in a major terror attack carried out by Jaish-e-Mohammad in south Kashmir’s Awantipora area Thursday.
The suicide bomber, who was identified as a local militant, rammed an explosive-laden car into the CRPF bus which was going from Jammu to Srinagar as part of a 70-vehicle-strong convoy. Security personnel are probing the incident.
On Friday, PM Modi assured the country that he had given the forces a free hand to respond to the terror attack, and gave Pakistan an unsparing warning that its designs would not be allowed to succeed. With the government resolving to isolate Pakistan in the international community, the Prime Minister highlighted how Pakistan's path had led it to financial doom:
"Our neighbouring country is forgetting that this is new India, terrorist organisations and their masters will get it back. Our neighbouring country is going through a grave financial crisis, their situation is so bad that big countries are distancing from them. It has become difficult for them to run their daily expenses and is roaming around with a begging bowl."
