Expressing grief over the loss of 40+ lives, Bollywood condemns terror attack on CRPF jawans.
At least 40 CRPF jawans were martyred and over 30 others were injured Yesterday (14th February 2019) when a car loaded with over 200 kg of explosives rammed into a CRPF bus on the Srinagar-Jammu Highway in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district.

Also, Hindi film fraternity expressed their grief over the incident.

Shameful! Tragic & shocking. Jaish-e-Mohammed has brazenly & shamelessly claimed responsibility. These monsters have no soul, no humanity. Pure evil! Why does this terrorist group have safe haven in #Pakistan ? @ImranKhanPTI RIP our brave soldiers, strength to bereaved families. https://t.co/p3vteVL23K
