Pulwama IED (Improvised Explosive Device)Blast Averted in J&K
The car, which had a fake registration number, accelerated after the driver was signaled to stop. When the police opened fire, the driver first sped off, then abandoned the car and escaped.
On camera, a huge blast is set off as security forces destroy a car full of explosives after stopping a major terror attack yesterday at Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama. Security forces intercepted a car carrying 40-45 kilograms of an improvised explosive device (IED) at a check-post.
“It (car) was kept under watch for the night. People in nearby houses were evacuated and the vehicle was destroyed on-site by the bomb disposal squad as moving it would have been a serious threat,” Director General of Police Dilbag Singh said.
The police, army, and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) acted jointly after the police in Pulwama received information about a terrorist on the move in a car full of explosives.
Inspector-General of Police Kashmir, Vijay Kumar said the terrorists of Hizbul Mujahideen (HM) and Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) were working together to target the security forces in a similar manner as the February last year suicide attack which left more than 40 CRPF personnel dead.
