As many as 42 CRPF personnel were killed and several others were injured in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district on Thursday when a Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terrorist rammed an explosives-laden vehicle into the bus the jawans were travelling in, officials said. After Uri, this is considered to be one of the worst terror strikes in Jammu and Kashmir in recent years. The JeM, the Pakistani based terror group has claimed responsibility for the gruesome attack that took place around 03:30 pm at Lethpora village about 30 km away from Jammu and Kashmir's capital city Srinagar.
