It is very sad that the stone-pelters  targeted the funeral procession of slain Lieutenant Umer Fayaz, who was abducted and shot dead by militants in the Shopian district of Kashmir.  Lt  Fayaz was later laid to rest at his hometown in Pulwama.  He was abducted by five to six militants from his relative’s house from Kulgam town late on Tuesday evening. His bullet-riddled body was found in Harmain area of Shopian this morning, a police official said.  The officer had gone to attend the wedding ceremony of a relative.  Hailing from Kulgam district, Fayaz was in the Infantry and was posted in Akhnoor area in Jammu. He was commissioned in the Army in December last year.  Fayaz had passed out from National Defence Academy and was to go for the Young Officers’ Course in September this year. He was also a hockey and volleyball player.  Rediff.com : 10th. May,17
