Thousands of people on Saturday evening attended the funeral prayers of Muzaffar Ahmad Mir who was exhumed yesterday in Langate area of north Kashmir's Kupwara district.

Mir was killed over a fortnight ago in Rafiabad woods in north Kashmir's Baramulla district.

An eyewitness said that thousands of people assembled in his native village and attended the funeral prayers.

22-year-old Mir, a resident of Astanpora Langate, was killed in a gunfight along with four other associates at Dangiwacha on August 8.

Mir had gone missing from his home only a week ago.
