JAMMU: The barbaric attack of Pulwama has drawn a widespread condemnation from the government and opposition alike. Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti while condemned the terror attack termed it as "dastardly". "Violence had taken a heavy toll in the state in terms of death and destruction, tearing apart of the social fabric, inflicting massive economic, academic and social losses besides the irreparable loss of human lives," she said.
She paid rich tributes to the jawans including an officer, killed in the post-midnight attack on the training centre at Lethpora in south Kashmir.
