Srinagar, June 30: Braving rains, thousands of mourners on Saturday participated in the funeral prayers of slain civilian, Faizan Ahmad Poswal at his native Gosannad Ludhow village in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district on Saturday.
Two rounds of funeral prayers were held at local Eidgah since last night while third one was offered at District Hospital Pulwama.
Since late Friday evening mourners marched in thousands to reach the native village of Faizan to participate in his funeral and to have his last glimpse.
Son of a doctor, Faizan, a Class 10 student, had gone to the gunfight site at Chatapora where he along with hundreds of youth joined the stone pelting protests to disrupt the operation.
Dozens of youth sustained bullet, pellet and tear smoke shell injuries during the clashes and were shifted to Pulwama hospital for treatment. But Faizan was hit by a bullet in chest and lost battle for his life on way to the hospital.
