In a terrorist attack by a suicide bomber in Pulwama district of Kashmir, 44 CRPF jawans were killed and many more were injured. 


The despicable act has been condemned by world leaders who have offered their condolences to the families of the victims and extended their support to India. 

The state of Jammu and Kashmir has long been the epicentre of such attacks resulting in the death of hundreds over a period of decades.
