Jaish-e-Muhammad claims responsibility of Pulwama Fidayeen attack

Srinagar: Militant outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad has claimed the responsibility of the attack on District Police Lines Pulwama that left two CRPF troopers and a policeman dead and six others injured on Saturday.

Jaish-e-Mohammed, abbreviated as JeM is a Deobandi militant group active in Kashmir. The group’s primary motive is to separate Kashmir from India and merge it into Pakistan. It has carried out several attacks primarily in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. It also maintained close relations with Taliban and Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan and continues to be allied to them.

A spokesperson of the outfit, who identified himself as Hasan Shah, told news agency CNS over phone that the “valiant militants stormed into CRPF camp stationed at District Police Lines (DPL) Pulwama and inflicted casualties upon the armed forces.”

“The armed forces have suffered massive damage while militants present there are giving a tough time to the Indian troops,” he said.

In a Fidayeen attack (suicide attack) on the District Police Lines (DPL), a policeman was killed and six others have been critically injured in Pulwama district of the Kashmir valley. The death toll of the attack has now risen to 3.
