Constable Abdul Kareem belonged to a village in Langate in northern Kashmir and was killed while fighting a group of terrorists who he had intercepted at a checkpoint.

Langate is one of the most volatile areas of the valley and was one of the most affected ones during the recent unrest.

In the past few months, the valley had witnessed a lot of clashes between security forces and protesters which led the state to witness a curfew which lasted months.

 

India Facts



Last year the state had witnessed another hero send off in the valley, but at that time it was for Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Burhan Wani who was killed by the Indian Army.

Following his funeral possession, the valley had witnessed a series of protests leading to hostility against the state police.

But putting the past behind them, thousands gathered to attend Kareem’s funeral and gave him a hero’s sendoff which has not been witnessed in the Valley for years.
