Pulwama investigations: Questions not answered by Indians

4 1 5

On February 14 2019, an explosive-laden vehicle rammed through India’s central reserve police force convoy near Awantipora on the Srinagar-Jammu Highway. Forty CRPF personnel were killed. Without investigation, India blamed Jaish-e-Mohammad, Jaish-e-Mohammad’s Adil Ahmed Dar and Pakistan for the incident. Pulwama investigation

Recent media reports reflect US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), nicknamed Fidelity, Bravery Integrity, assisted India in corroborating the latter’s knee-jerk reaction. The FBI itself is in crisis in the US. Not only the Democratic Hillary Clinton, but also President Trump blames it for dabbling in politics.

The Time, dated May 14 2018, reported: ‘Democrats have questioned the integrity of the bureau as well, with both [Hillary] Clinton and her aides claiming [James]Comey and the FBI helped tip the election to Trump…President Trump has continually attacked the integrity of the institution and its leaders, alleging not just incompetence but bad faith in the commission of justice.’

Why did India have to bank on the FBI when it already possessed all communications from Pakistan? For instance, it intercepted the whole talk between military dictator Yahya Khan and his coterie during the East Pakistan/Bangladesh crisis. India intercepted Musharraf’s conversation with his generals while he was flying back from China to Pakistan.

Immediately after the Pulwama incident, India slated Pakistan for the suicide bombing. The allegation was made even before forensic-lab and National Investigation Agency teams visited the site of the attack at Lethpora, some 30 kilometres from Srinagar on the Srinagar-Jammu national highway. The February 15, 2019 edition of the Indian Express speculated ‘High-grade RDX explosive, weighing about 80 kilograms, was used in the suicide attack.’

Indian reporters estimated 100-150 kg of the explosive was used. Investigating agencies have also taken tower dumps of the attack area to filter out suspicious calls, those made in around the same time as the attack (Hindustan Times dated February 16, 2019).
