A day after 44 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel were killed by the Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) in a suicide attack in Kashmir's Pulwama, Prime Minister Narendra Modi chaired the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) on Friday.
Two blue buses carrying around 35 people each bore the brunt of the explosion around 20 kilometres (12 miles) from the main city of Srinagar on the main highway towards Jammu.
The suicide bombing outside Srinagar claimed by an Islamist group is likely to ratchet up tensions between nuclear-armed arch rivals India and Pakistan, with New Delhi long accusing Islamabad of supporting militants.

"We strongly reiterate our appeal to all members of the worldwide community to support the proposal to list terrorists, including JeM Chief Masood Azhar, as a designated terrorist under the 1267 Sanctions Committee of the UN Security Council and to ban terrorist organisations operating from territories controlled by Pakistan", read the statement.
The US also said it stands alongside India in defeating terrorism.
The attack raises many questions - on security, as well as on the changing political situation in Jammu and Kashmir, where elections are ahead in a few months. "We send our heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims", U.S. ambassador to India Kenneth Juster tweeted.
While it's heartening to see that a wide swath of the global community is unequivocally condemning the attack, such statements of solidarity must be backed up by actions which help bring to an end the ability of such terrorist groups to kill with impunity and destabilize the region, the foundation said. "Indonesia will continue to work with the global community to fight against terrorism, extremism and radicalism as well as address its root causes". "This heinous and despicable act has been perpetrated by Jaish-e-Mohammed", India's foreign ministry said in a statement.
Another auto bomb attack also happened in Srinagar in March 2005 in which one civilian died and several soldiers were wounded.
A rising trend was also observed in the number of people who were killed in terrorism-related activities in Jammu & Kashmir in these five years. We pray for speedy recovery of the injured.
