Thousands gather at martyr Mujahid Khan's funeral

The wreath laying of Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawan Mujahid Khan took place at his hometown in Bihar's Arrah city on Wednesday. Khan lost his life during an encounter with terrorists at CRPF camp in Srinagar's Karan Nagar.

People were seen waiting for the arrival of Mujahid's mortal remains, flown to his hometown in Arrah. Thousands attending the funeral shouted "Shaheed Mujahid Khan amar rahe amar rahe" to pay their tributes to the slain soldier. Khan was a resident of Bihar and part of the 49 Battalion.

The 32-hour gunbattle between security forces and two LeT terrorists, who hid in a building in Karan Nagar after their attempts to attack the CRPF camp failed, ended yesterday with them being killed.

The security operation to flush out the terrorists from the under-construction building in the heart of the city was carried out by a Special Operations Group (SOG) of the Jammu and Kashmir Police and the Central Reserve Police Force.

The Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) claimed responsibility for the attack.

This came two days after Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terrorists attacked an Army camp in Jammu's Sunjuwan area, killing seven people, including six Army soldiers. Three terrorists were also killed in retaliation by the Army.
