Srinagar, Oct 30: Hundreds of people on Friday joined the last rites of three Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers who were killed by militants of Lashker-e-Toiba(LeT) in south Kashmir district of Kulgam.

Meanwhile, massive Cordon and Search Operations (CASOs) by security force agencies at about eight places in Kulgam are going on to nab the militants responsible for these killings.

Large number of women had also gathered at the residence of BJP Yuva Morcha District General secretary for Kulgam Fida Hussain Itoo at Y K Pora, one of the three saffron party leaders killed by militants. The two others were Umar Hajam and Haroon Rashid.

Hundreds of people joined the “Nimaz Jinazah” of Fida before he was buried in his native village at Y K Pora. People from the locality described him very helpful.

"Fida was always ready to help anyone who approach him," they said, condemning his killing.
