On Thursday afternoon, a suicide bomber detonated a car-load of explosives alongside a convoy of 78 CRPF buses with over 2,500 employees traveling to the street from Jammu. Pakistan-based terror team Jaish-e-Mohammed maintained the assault.
After the assault, the authorities chose to take all possible diplomatic actions to ensure”absolute isolation” of both Pakistan and hauled’Most Favoured Nation’ standing to the nation. On Thursday evening, New Delhi urged the global community to back the naming of Jaish-e-Mohammed leader Masood Azhar as a”UN-designated terrorist”; the Pakistan-based terror outfit has claimed the assault.
