Tezpur, Feb 14 : While the entire world is celebrating Valentines Day, the scenario in India is bit different. Along with the rest of the country, the Darrang College Students’ Union also paid deepest tributes to the Martyrs of Pulwama Attack, where atleast 44 CRPF Jawans were killed in a deadliest terror attack last year on this day.
On 14 February 2019, a convoy of vehicles carrying security personnel on the Jammu Srinagar National Highway was attacked by a vehicle-borne suicide bomber at Lethpora (near Awantipora) in the Pulwama district, Jammu and Kashmir, India. The attack resulted in the deaths of 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel and the attacker. The responsibility for the attack was claimed by the Pakistan-based Islamist militant group Jaish-e-Mohammed.
