Nationwide Protests Against Awantipora Suicide Attack

NEW DELHI

Nation-wide protest ensued in different parts on the country against the merciless killing of as many as 42 CRPF personnel yesterday in one of the worst suicide attacks on the security forces in Jammu and Kashmir`s Pulwama district.

A large number of youths protested in Jammu and Kashmir over the incident. “We are protesting against the killing of our 42 CRPF jawans. This is shameful. There should be stern actions now, there should be another surgical strike,” some protesters said.

In the deadliest attack on security forces in Kashmir, around 44 CRPF personnel were killed on Thursday when their convoy was targeted by a suspected suicide bomber of Pakistan-backed Jaish-e-Mohammad in Pulwama district on the Srinagar-Jammu National Highway.
