Jammu: Protests were held Tuesday in Jammu city against the Pulwama militant attack that left 49 CRPF personnel dead and several others injured, even as curfew remained in force.
Led by Jammu West Assembly Movement (JWAM) president Sunil Dimple, the activists gathered on road in New plot area of the city and held protest demonstrations.
The protesters took out a rally and raised slogans against Pakistan and militants as they carried posters denouncing that country and Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), the militant group which had claimed responsibility for the attack in Pulwama.
Defying curfew, the protesters took out the rally in Dogra Hall area of the city.
They said the “militant war has been started by Pakistan”, as a Major was among four soldiers and a policeman who were killed while a brigadier and DIG were among the nine security personnel injured during the gun battle in Pinglan area of Pulwama district Monday.
Dimple threatened to intensify holding intense protests as he alleged Pakistan for starting a full-fledged proxy war against India in Kashmir and across the LoC.
He appealed the Government of India to start massive clean up operation in the entire Kashmir region.
Authorities Tuesday relaxed curfew for two hours in the jurisdiction of three police station areas of Jammu, while it continued to remain in force in rest of the city, which had witnessed massive protests in the wake of the Pulwama terror attack, officials said.
