On 14th February 2019, when an Indian convoy comprising of Central Reserve Police were passing through the district of Pulwama[1] in Jammu & Kashmir, there was a suicide bombing in which a truck containing military-grade RDX explosives[2] rammed into the convoy thereby martyring more than 42 personals.[3] It was one of the biggest terrorist attacks that took place in the Indian soil and it was linked with Jaish-E-Mohammed, a group of Islamist militants, whom India believed to be backed by the Pakistani government in a conspiracy to challenge the Indian sovereignty.[4]
