National Conference leader and former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah on Saturday insulted the Indian security forces by question the death of Pulwama Martyrs. While addressing his party workers, the NC chief said he 'doubt that 40 CRPF jawans were martyred'.
"Were Indian soldiers not Martyred in Chhattisgarh? Did Modi Ji go there to give them blood? Did he sympathise with their families? Did he say something about soldiers who were martyred here? But those 40 CRPF people who were martyred, Which I doubt. And I am telling you the truth".
Furthermore, Farooq Abdullah launched an attack on the BJP-led Central government over its claims on the IAF strike in Pakistan's Balakot. He said that Pakistan's F-16 was shot down because PM Modi wanted to 'show how brave he is'.
"And he made an issue out of it and what did he do? Tried to attack Pakistan. Said we have attacked and killed 300 people there. Some said 500 people, some said 1000. He said that we have also shot down their plane. Only to show how brave he is".
Earlier, a request was sent to the US to seek details from a service provider of "virtual SIMs", which were used by the JeM suicide bomber behind the Pulwama attack and his Pakistan and Kashmir-based handlers, officials said.
Piecing together probe from the site of the terror strike, searches carried out by the Jammu and Kashmir police and central security agencies at an encounter site in Tral as well as other locations, it was found that the bomber, Adil Dar, was in constant touch with the JeM across the border, they said.
The main mastermind of the audacious attack, Mudassir Khan, was killed in the encounter in Tral.
On February 14, a blast occured as a vehicle laden with explosives rammed into the CRPF convoy. Soon after the blast, shots were fired at the CRPF jawans. Pakistan- backed terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad claimed responsibility for the attack.
Several countries from across the globe stood in support of India in the wake of a deadly terror attack. India has revoked the Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status that was unilaterally accorded to Pakistan over 20 years ago. The government has also resolved to isolate Pakistan on the global stage.
