Receiving global support, 72 hours after the deadly Pulwama attack, India has managed to expose the menace of terrorism being bred on the Pakistani soil, with terrorists like Maulana Masood Azhar roaming free there. India has launched an all-out diplomatic effort to isolate Pakistan on global platforms with decisions aimed at crippling the neighbouring country, already amidst an economic crisis.

At least 40 soldiers of the CRPF were killed when a JeM affiliated suicide bomber, Adil Ahmad Dar, rammed his explosive-laden vehicle in the bus ferrying jawans on the Jammu-Srinagar highway on Thursday. The bus was part of a convoy of 78 vehicles carrying over 2,500 paramilitary personnel to Kashmir from Jammu. Most of them were joining duty after coming back from leave. Here are the steps that the government has taken so far.

Hours after the suicide bomber attack, claimed by Pakistan based militant group Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), India held meetings with 25 countries including the P5 nations US, China, Russia, the UK and France briefing them on the attack and the role of Pakistan in using terrorism as a state policy. The meeting was headed by Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale, who met with the representatives of various countries demanding them to cease all support to Pakistan.
