All troops safe, says Indian Army defence spokesperson, calls Pulwama IED blast ‘failed attempt’

Srinagar: Indian Army on Monday said that the IED explosion in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district was a “failed attempt”, which caused “minor injuries” to few soldiers.

“A failed attempt was made to attack a mobile vehicle patrol of 44 RR with a Vehicle Based IED while the Army patrol was moving in the general area Arihal in district Pulwama today evening,” said a defence spokesman.

“Troops all safe (sic). Few minor injuries,” he added while terming as “unfounded and baseless” the reports suggesting an attack on an army convoy.
