New Delhi (NVI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi today paid tributes to the soldiers who were killed in 2019 terror attack in Pulwama, saying “no Indian can forget this day” and that their bravery will continue to inspire the future generations.
“No Indian can forget this day. Two years ago, the #PulwamaAttack happened. We pay homage to all the martyrs we lost in that attack. We are proud of our security forces. Their bravery will continue to inspire generations,” PM Modi said while addressing a gathering in Chennai where he handed over the indigenously developed Arjun Main Battle Tank (Mark 1A) to the Indian Army.
On February 14, 2019, 40 CRPF troopers were killed when a suicide bomber rammed his car laden with explosives into a CRPF bus coming from Jammu to Srinagar near Lethpora on Srinagar-Jammu Highway. Terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad had claimed the responsibility for the attack.
Days after, in response to the Pulwama attack, the Indian Air Force carried a cross-border airstrike on terror training camps in Pakistan’s Balakot.
