Pulwama Terror Attack A Timeline of Tragic Events (Black Day)

Four years ago on February 14, India faced a tragic day when 40 CRPF officers lost their lives in the Pulwama terror attack, marking it as a "black day" in the nation's history. 

This devastating incident unfolded when a suicide bomber from Jaish-e-Mohammad targeted a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) convoy with an explosive-laden vehicle, causing one of the deadliest attacks on Indian security forces.

Here is a timeline of the Pulwama terror attack:

A suicide bomber, identified as Adil Ahmad Dar, targeted two buses carrying CRPF members in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district.

JeM claimed responsibility through a video, exacerbating the gravity of the situation.

India accused Pakistan of supporting terrorism and giving free rein to JeM's leader, Masood Azhar.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi vowed a heavy price for those responsible, warning Pakistan against orchestrating such attacks. Curfews were imposed in Jammu, and military forces were deployed to maintain law and order.

Political parties passed a resolution supporting security forces.

Customs duty on Pakistani goods was increased to 200%, and individuals with alleged connections to JeM were detained.

India launched a diplomatic offensive against Pakistan, urging evidence of its involvement in the attack.

Indo-Pak Ties Deteriorate

 India revoked Pakistan's most preferred nation status and raised customs duty on all Pakistani goods to 20%.

India pushed for Pakistan's inclusion in the Financial Action Task Force on Money Laundering (FATF) blacklist.

 Indian Air Force jets conducted airstrikes on JeM camps in Balakot, Pakistan, marking the first attack plane crossing the Line of Control since the 1971 Indo-Pakistani War.

The operation resulted in the destruction of the JeM camp in Balakot.

February 27, 2019

Pakistani F-16s entered Indian airspace, targeting military facilities. One F-16 and two Indian MiG-21 Bisons were destroyed.

Pakistan initially claimed custody of two IAF pilots but later confirmed holding only one, Wing Commander Abhinandan.

February 28, 2019

Imran Khan announced the release of Wing Commander Abhinandan in a press conference.

Evidence was presented, indicating the use of Pakistani F-16s against India in the airstrike on February 27.

The Pulwama terror attack and its aftermath not only led to a significant loss of lives but also had far-reaching consequences for the diplomatic relations between India and Pakistan.
