Pulwama IED attack: Two injured Army men succumb

Srinagar: Two army personnel injured in an Improvised Explosive Device attack in Pulwama last night succumbed to injuries.

Srinagar based army spokesperson said that two Army men, who were brought to military hospital with severe contusions, concussions, have succumbed to their injuries while undergoing treatment in 92 Base Hospital.

“We deeply mourn the demise of our bravehearts,” he said. On Monday the spokesperson rejected that militants carried out an attack on the army’s mobile patrol.

However, on Monday, the Spokesperson had said that the attack 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.
