Kashmir Pulwama terror attack LIVE UPDATES: With teary eyes, families, friends and the nation bid farewell to CRPF jawans as their mortal remains were put to flames in solemn ceremonies in their native places. At least 40 CRPF jawans were killed when a suicide bomber rammed his explosive-laden vehicles into a bus ferrying soldiers on the Jammu-Srinagar Highway on Thursday.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday expressed that the nation will not forget the supreme sacrifice made by the paramilitary personnel and assured families who lost their loved one that “each drop of tear will be avenged (aasu ka pura pura jawab liya jayega).” “Those who spray bullets or those who provide guns and bombs to target our soldiers, will not be spared. We will not allow them to sleep in peace. India is a country of new traditions and new policies and the world will now experience it,” the prime minister added. Meanwhile, at an all-party meeting, chaired by Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh in Parliament, leaders resolved to stand united in solidarity with security forces in fighting terrorism and defending the unity and integrity of India.
