On Oct 29, Pakistan's Science & Technology Minister Fawad Chaudhry admitted country's alleged role in Pulwama terror attack.
When his fellow ministers objected to his mention of Pulwama's success, the minister within seconds changed his statement and said that ‘we attacked India after the Pulwama incident, inside their territory’. He further added that ‘India itself was ashamed of how Pakistan's Shaheens invaded India after the Pulwama incident’.
On Feb. 14, 2019, a jeep laden with explosives hit a CRPF convoy at Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama’s Lethpora, which claimed the lives of 40 Indian Central Reserve Police Force personnel.
Terrorist group Jaish-e-Mohammed had claimed responsibility for the attack; however, Pakistan had repeatedly denied its role in the same. Soon after the attack, a statement issued by the country read that ‘we strongly reject ant insinuation by the elements in the Indian media and government that seek to link the attack to Pakistan without investigation.’
