Indian security forces inspect the remains of a vehicle following an attack on a Central Reserve Police Force convoy that killed at least 44 officers and injured several others in Kashmir south of Srinagar on Thursday.

Pakistan said it was gravely concerned by the bombing but rejected allegations that it was responsible for it, according to BBC.

At least 25 high school students were injured by an explosion in their classroom in Indian-controlled Kashmir on Wednesday (Thursday NZ time), police and medics said. The terrorists indiscriminately fired at the convoy after the blast.

But bilateral trade between India and Pakistan is barely $2 billion per year and Modi facing a tough election is likely to come under pressure for a more muscular response. Indian troops cordoned off the entire area and launched search operation.

Senator Johnny Isakson strongly criticized the terror strike and pledged the US' support to India in defeating terrorism. "The Government and people of Indonesia express our deepest condolences and solidarity to the victims of the terror attack and their families", the Indonesian Foreign Ministry noted in a statement.

Spain and Italy also have condemned the attack. Mr Naidu said he was shocked by the dastardly attack. "I bow to each and every CRPF jawan who has sacrificed his life in service to the nation", India's Home Minister Rajnath Singh said. "A auto overtook the convoy and rammed into a bus with security personnel on board", a senior Indian police official told BBC. "Our prayers are with the grieved family and we are following the situation closely", Bhutanese prime minister Lotay Tshering said.

The bus, consisting of 42 CRPF personnel, was extensively damaged in the blast, which was followed by firing on the vehicle.

"The Russian people mourn together with the friendly people of India and hope for the speedy recovery of all the injured".

Union Minister Arun Jaitley termed the attack as cowardice and condemnable. The entire nation stands shoulder to shoulder with the families of the fearless martyrs and may the injured recover quickly.

"Indonesia reiterates that acts of terrorism are criminal and unjustifiable, regardless of their motivation".

The last major attack in Kashmir was in 2016 when militants raided an Indian army camp in Uri, killing 20 soldiers.

Stressing that the Jammu and Kashmir dispute continues to remain one of the biggest challenges faced by the Muslims, Qazi said that Ankara, as the chair of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) as well as an important member of the OIC Contact Group on the conflict "has been playing an important role in this regard".

Congress president Rahul Gandhi said he was deeply disturbed by the cowardly attack on the convoy in which so many CRPF men were killed.

Information and Broadcasting Minister Colonel Rajyavardhan Rathore has condemned the despicable attack on CRPF.
