6/5/2020 11:43:04 PM
Early Times Report

Jammu, June 5: The National Investigation Agency or NIA is likely to probe the Pulwama-style car-bomb of 2019 that was prevented in south Kashmir on May 28 with security forces spotting and defusing a vehicle laden with over 40 kilos of deadly explosives.
Sources said the NIA was likely to probe the fresh car bomb case as the investigating agency is already probing the previous attack that took place in February last year and left at least 45 CRPF personnel dead.
Sources said the NIA looks ahead to merge the case of the fresh attack bid with the previous case as both of them seem to have the same modus operandi.
“Both the attacks seem to be having same modus operandi and have taken place in same district and for the same purpose so there is a connection which needs to be probed at highest level,” said a senior official on the condition of anonymity.
It was reliably learnt that the NIA is already in contact with the Jammu and Kashmir Police and have sought a details about the leads as have been made in the fresh case.
As per the Inspector General of Police Kashmir Vijay Kumar, a timely action of security forces had averted the major tragedy on the fateful day.
The IGP had told media that the suicide attacker jumped two checkpoints before leaving a vehicle behind the vehicle. “The attacker left behind the vehicle late on Wednesday night at Ayegund area of Rajpora, Pulwama”, the IGP had said.
The police suspect that around 40 Kgs of explosive material were fitted in the vehicle and a blast could have been similar to the 2019 Pulwama explosion. As per the sources in the police, the explosives were fitted in the vehicle jointly by Hizb-ul-Mujahideen and Jaish-e-Muhammad militants.
The police have initiated an investigation if the explosives were procured locally or RDX was managed through any cross-Line of Control route.
A senior police official said there are inputs that a group of Pakistani terrorists had fabricated the bombs in the car that was defused in Pulwama.
