The ADG PI of Indian Army shared on Twitter the heart-wrenching photo captured during his funeral. "You are not alone," he wrote.

Lance Naik Nazir Ahmed Wani, was a militant initially and became a counter-insurgent after he realised the futility of violence. He was killed during an encounter in South Kashmir's Shopian district in which six militants were killed.

The Lance Naik began his career with Territorial Army's 162 Battalion in 2004. He was since involved in counter-insurgency operations being carried out by the Army in parts of Kashmir. He was seen as a counter-insurgent in the Army circles.

Wani was an epitome of bravery as he continued his relentless pursuit against terrorism specifically in South Kashmir. His battalion was attached with a unit of Rashtriya Rifles, a force carved out of the Army for fighting militancy in Jammu and Kashmir.

Wani, 38, who died during a fierce gunfight Sunday, is survived by a wife and two children aged 20 and 18 years.
