Shopian, Feb 14 : To mark the fourth anniversary of Pulwama attack, people in south Kashmir's Shopian town held a candlelight vigil on Tuesday.
Scores of people gathered at Gole Chakri, the business centre of the town and lit candles to mark the fourth anniversary of the Pulwama attack. With candles in their hands, the protesters denounced the attack and paid tributes to the slain CRPF men who lost their lives in the deadly attack. An official told Greater Kashmir that people from different walks of life participated in the vigil. On this day in 2019, at least 40 CRPF men lost their lives when a terrorist rammed an explosive fitted car into a CRPF bus in Pulwama's Lehtapora area.
Last year, hundreds of people took out a candle light march to condemn the targeted killings of the members of a particular community in the district.
