Burhan was killed on July 8 last 2016 during a joint operation by Indian Forces in south Kashmir’s Kokernag area, which was followed by widespread protest demonstrations across Kashmir Valley resulting in killings and blindness of scores of youth due to pellets and bullets.

The spokesperson said that the mega function will be held in Muzaffarabad, the capital of Pakistan administered Kashmir. (CNS)
