the two oppositely charged ions i.e, cation and anion are held together by the columbic forces of attraction to form an ionic bond . here can we use the term electrostatic force of attraction instead of columbic forces of attraction?

There is no difference.
U can call it anything.
The basic concept is:
electrostatic force or coulambic force is given between two charges .i.e. cation or anion electrion or proton proton or proton electron or electron.
The force thus, would be given as:
 
F = kq1q1/r^2
where r is the distance b/w them.
