All the shops and business establishments are closed in the area while government offices are closed due to a public holiday.

Witnesses said that thousands of people tried to march towards Qaimoh – the ancestral village of the slain militant – to participate in his funeral prayers.

Authorities have imposed Section 144 in Qaimoh and adjoining areas to prevent protests and rallies against the killing of the militant.
