New Delhi: An explosion has been reported from Jammu and Kashmir’s Awantipora on Sunday, days after the February 14 Pulwama attack that claimed lives of 40 CRPF jawans.
“A blast has been reported from Awantipora (in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district) this evening,” a police officer said. Officials from the local police unit are ascertaining the facts at the spot, he added.
No loss of life or any injury has been reported, the official said, adding further details were awaited.
The Pulwama attack cascaded into a major cross-border tension between India and Pakistan after the Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) claimed the attack, and New Delhi responded with an Indian Air Force strike on the JeM’s largest terror camp within a fortnight.
