    A year of Pulwama terror attack

    New Delhi (NVI): President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi today payed homage to the 40 CRPF personnel killed in the Pulwama attack in Jammu and Kashmir last year, saying India will never forget their martyrdom.

    “A grateful nation salutes the supreme sacrifice of our brave soldiers who lost their lives in the dastardly attack by terrorists in Pulwama, Jammu and Kashmir on this day last year,” the President said.

    The Prime Minister described the martyred personnel as exceptional individuals who devoted their lives to serving and protecting the nation.

    As many as 40 CRPF personnel were killed when their convoy was targeted by a suicide bomber of Pakistan-backed Jaish-e-Mohammad in Pulwama district.
