Pulwama terrorist attack
The suicide bomber, Adil Ahmad Dar, 22, hit a vehicle loaded with explosives in the bus carrying soldiers.

The attack, which was reported near Awantipora around 3:15 p.m., resulted in the death of 40 CRPF jawans, while many others were injured.
In October 2020, in a shocking admission, a senior Pakistani minister admitted that Pakistan was responsible for the Pulwama terrorist attack in India.
As tensions escalated between India and Pakistan, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said security forces were allowed to choose when, where and what nature of their response to the Pulwama terror attack . India then launched a counter-terrorist airstrike against a JeM training camp.
In the early hours of February 26, 2019, IAF aircraft bombed the Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terrorist camps at Balakot in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in Pakistan and avenged the Pulwama terrorist attack.
