Relations between India and Pakistan has worsened following a terror attack on February 14 in Pulwama, Kashmir, which had claimed lives of 42 Central Reserve Police Force personnel.

Days after the Pulwama attack, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said security forces have been given free hand to avenge the dastardly act.

Some, 2700 CRPF personnel were on their way to Srinagar when their convoy was attacked by an IED laden SUV rammed onto one of the busses.

Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad had claimed that they killed the CRPF soldiers.

Last Thursday, in a strong show of international support for India, the UNSC comprising 15 nations, including Pakistan’s key ally China, named JeM while condemning in the “strongest terms” the “heinous and cowardly” terror attack in Pulwama and stressed on the need to hold organisers and financiers of such “reprehensible acts” accountable and bring them to justice.

“The members of the Security Council underlined the need to hold perpetrators, organizers, financiers and sponsors of these reprehensible acts of terrorism accountable and bring them to justice, and urged all States…to cooperate actively with the Government of India and all other relevant authorities in this regard,” it said.
