A group of militants on Saturday participated in funeral prayers of Hizb commander Burhan Wani in Tral area of south Kashmir and offered him a three-volley salute.

Sources and locals confirmed to Greater Kashmir that militants participated in last rites of Burhan.

Amid massive pro-freedom sloganeering by mourners, the militants fired volleys in air to honour young militant commander seen as a poster boy of new age militancy, they said.

Such honouring cermonies were a routine during militant funerals in early '90s when armed insurgency was at its peak in Kashmir.
