Extending wishes on the occasion, Vice-President M Venkaiah Naidu said that CRPF is synonymous with the dedication and commitment towards duty and national security.

The CRPF came into existence as Crown Representative's Police on July 27, 1939. It became the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) on the enactment of the CRPF Act on December 28, 1949.

The accused had been undergoing judicial custody since September 2018 in another Jaish-e-Mohammed related case investigated by NIA.

The encounter broke out in the early hours of Tuesday, and a search operation is underway, said Jammu and Kashmir Police.

The joint team of security forces had launched a cordon and search operation after receiving inputs about the presence of terrorists in the area.

The KPKB has also clarified in its letter that product categorization has conducted on the sole basis of information provided by the firms only and in case of any litigation.

The plan had similarities with the 2019 Pulwama attack, which left more than 400 CRPF personnel killed as a suicide bomber drove an explosives-laden car into their convoy.

The vehicle was kept under watch for the night. People in nearby houses were evacuated and the vehicle exploded in situ by the Bomb Disposal Squad as moving the vehicle would have involved serious threat, sources said.
