On Tuesday, the Governor of Jammu and Kashmir, Mr Satya Pal Malik, took this decision to keep the students safe from any distress. The examinations for the students from classes 5 to 7 which were scheduled on Wednesday was postponed. However, the new date for the examination is yet to be disclosed. The cancellation of the examinations was declared by the District Magistrate himself.
As a response to the Pulwama terror attack, the Indian Air Force had carried out an attack on the terrorist camp base in Balakot. This attack was not well received by Pakistan. As a result of which, the following day the Indian air space rules were violated by a Pakistan aircraft. This occurred in Nowshera sector of Jammu, Rajouri district of Kashmir and also in Poonch. The attack was controlled by the Indian Air Force. This situation resulted in an air strike all over Jammu and Kashmir. All the aeroplanes were banned and flights were cancelled from all the airports of the state.
Mr Satya Pal Malik, the Governor, revised the law and order. He had earlier been reported that the conditions of the normal civilian life were fine in both the Jammu and Kashmir districts. The Governor has taken special care to maintain the safety of the civilians. Forces have been issued to keep a check on the law and order of the state. He also appreciated the cooperation of the locals of the valley who have kept their calm in such a tense situation.
After the terror organisation, Jaish-e-Mohammed took account for the Pulwama terror attack which took place on 14th of February, Indian Air Force planned out an air strike on their base camp. The Indian Air force retaliated with air strikes on the Balakot camp of Jaish-e-Mohammed terror outfit. As per Mr Vijay Gokhale, the Foreign Secretary, the air strikes were carried out by the top officials of the Air Force.
The terror camp in Balakot is supposedly headed by the brother-in-law of Masood Azhar, the actual chief of Jaish-e-Mohammed. Ustad Gauri, head of the Balakot camp, claimed that the Pulwama terror attack was carried out by JeM. His statement was recorded by the media before the air strikes took place.
After the air strikes, Pakistan took charge and carried out a ceasefire in several locations along the Line of Control. The Pakistan aircrafts also violated the Indian air space. The air crafts also dropped bombs leading to serious damages in several places.
This ongoing distress has triggered the schools of the Rajouri District to give an off day to the students of a middle school. Once normal conditions prevail in Jammu and Kashmir Valley, the examinations which were cancelled on 27th February will be held.
