Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid tribute to Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) officers slain in the 2019 Pulwama terror attack on Monday (February 14, 2022). He stated that the heroes' bravery and tremendous sacrifice inspire every Indian to strive for a strong and prosperous country.

Taking to Twitter, Prime Minister wrote, "I pay homage to all those martyred in Pulwama on this day in 2019 and recall their outstanding service to our nation. Their bravery and supreme sacrifice motivate every Indian to work towards a strong and prosperous country."

On February 14, 2019, a CRPF convoy was attacked in the Pulwama area of Jammu & Kashmir, killing 40 troops.

The bus had been rammed by a suicide bomber driving an explosive-laden car. The convoy consisted of 78 buses carrying around 2,500 soldiers from Jammu to Srinagar.

The Indian Air Force carried out multiple aerial attacks against JeM terror facilities in Pakistan's Balakot on February 26, killing a "substantial number" of terrorists and damaging their infrastructure just days after the incident.
