Hundreds of people attended funeral prayers of the slain militant today amidst chanting of pro-freedom and anti-India slogans.

The injured militant was taken to a local hospital where he was declared brought dead, police said.

Eyewitnesses said that as the funeral procession was moving, four militants with assault rifles appeared and fired shots in the air. Soon after the Udhampur attack, police arrested a Pakistani national and a Lashkar member, identified as Mohd Naveed.

On May 4, Indian forces cordoned off more than 20 villages in the Shopian district of occupied Kashmir, in the wake of a surge in militant attacks on the occupation forces in recent weeks. Police said the attack took place after a police party was clearing road near Malpora fallowing an accident in which a driver was killed.

Apart from armed militant groups, the roughly 500,000 Indian soldiers deployed in Kashmir are regularly involved in clashes with civilians, fuelling growing resentment against New Delhi. South Kashmir has seen spike in terrorist attacks during the last few months.
