SC to hear plea against attacks on Kashmiri students post Pulwama on Friday

  • The plea alleged that Kashmiris across India were being attacked post the Pulwama terror attack
  • At least 44 personnel of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) were killed and scores injured in the Pulwama attack

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Thursday agreed to hear a plea to protect Kashmiri students following the Pulwama terror attack.

The plea alleged that Kashmiris across India were being attacked post the Pulwama terror attack and cited past judgements on mob lynching.

It is likely to be heard on Friday.

At least 44 personnel of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) were killed and scores injured when a car laden with explosives rammed into a CRPF bus—part of a massive convoy—in the Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir on 14 February.

The bus was carrying 51 CRPF personnel when a Mahindra Scorpio, packed with 300kg of explosives and driven by a Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) suicide bomber, rammed into it in the town of Awantipora in south Kashmir.

Suicide bomber, Adil Ahmad Dar, a 20-year-old school dropout from Pulwama, had been recruited by the JeM last year to specifically train for the attack.
