Kumar was killed as Pakistani troops violated the ceasefire, resorting to heavy shelling and firing from automatic weapons in several sectors along the International Border in Jammu district on Monday.
A large number of people from the town and the adjoining villages were lined along the road from Pihowa chowk to Kumar’s residence on Gulha road to pay homage to the martyr.
Heavy crowd assembled at the main chowk when his body was brought by a team of BSF officers at Pihowa at around 7.30 am on Tuesday.
Earlier, Minister of State for Social welfare Krishan Bedi laid wreath on behalf of the state government.
He announced that an ex-gratia grant of Rs 50 lakh would be given to Kumar’s family by the Haryana Government.
