The terrorist attack that took place yesterday in Jammu and Kashmir on soldiers of the Central Reserve Police Force surprised the world. This attack is being considered as the biggest attack of terrorists in the history of Jammu and Kashmir.
At least 44 soldiers were killed in the dangerous attack in the Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir. The convoy was on the Srinagar-Jammu highway when this attack occurred. One of the convoy buses was completely destroyed, and several soldiers lost their lives.
Indian cricketers gathered at the microblogging site, Twitter, to offer their condolences for the death of soldiers from the Central Reserve Police Force who were killed. Here is a look at them.

Yes, let’s talk with the separatists. Yes, let’s talk with Pakistan. But this time conversation can’t be on the table, it has to be in a battle ground. Enough is enough. 18 CRPF personnel killed in IED blast on Srinagar-Jammu highway https://t.co/aa0t0idiHY via @economictimes
