Kulgam: Militants on Monday offered gun salute to a youth from this south Kashmir district, who succumbed to his injuries at a hospital in Srinagar on Sunday night.

A group of militants appeared in Hawoora village shortly after the funeral of Javed Ahmad Lone was offered, witnesses told Kashmir Reader. The militants fired many shots in air to pay homage to Lone, who became the seventh victim of the explosion that occurred at the gunfight site on Sunday.

Interestingly, the graveyard where militants offered gun salute to the slain youth is at a stone’s throw from the newly established army camp.
