Earlier, Pakistan Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa on Saturday praised Hizbul-Mujahideen militant Burhan Wani.
“Sacrifices of Burhan Wani and generations against Indian atrocities are a testimony of their resolve,” the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) DG said on Twitter.

Burhan was killed in an encounter with Indian Army in Jammu and Kashmir a year ago. His death had led to a surge in protests in the Valley.
Pakistan and India have been in a tense standoff with an upsurge in ceasefire violations and cross-border infiltration by Pakistani militants into Kashmir. India says Wani was a terrorist who had taken up the gun.
