Updated On 15 Feb, 2019 Published On

40 Indian soldiers were killed after a suicide car bomber crashed into a bus carrying them in Pulwama, Kashmir.

The death toll may increase as dozens of others officers were "critically injured" on a convoy of the Central Reserve Police Force.

The terror attack was one of the deadliest attacks on security forces in the country in two decades. It certainly has raised tensions between India and Pakistan once again.

According to the BBC report, Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), the Pakistan-based Islamist militant group, are responsible for the attack on the main highway of Kashmir.

India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi took to Twitter and described the attack as "despicable" and "dastardly."

Two former chief ministers of the state, Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah also shared tweets about the attack.

India and Pakistan have involved in multiple wars since independence from Britain in 1947.

Thursday's terror attack came nearly 17 years after militants killed more than 31 people at an army base in Kaluchak.
