Pulwama attack: Four out of five attackers killed, one arrested, says GoI
Four out of the five attackers involved in the Pulwama attack were killed, while one was arrested by the armed forces, Union Minister of State for Home G Kishan Reddy said on Tuesday.
He said in Lok Sabha that probe by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) has revealed the links of the Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), which was responsible for planning and execution of the attack.
More than forty CRPF personnel were killed on February 14 in an attack by a suicide bomber on their convoy in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district.
“Out of five accused, one was a suicide bomber. One accused was arrested, while two others were neutralized during pro-active engagement by the security forces. One of the accused, Mudasir Ahmad Khan alias Mohammed Bhai, was neutralised during proactive engagement by the security forces,” he said replying to a written question.
The minister said a Court of Inquiry is ordered in such cases to look into various aspects and accordingly, it was ordered by the CRPF.
