Patna: Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar on Tuesday saluted bravery of the CRPF jawan who was killed while foiling a terrorist attack at the camp in Srinagar and announced that his funeral would be performed with full police honour.

The deceased jawan Mujahid Khan hailed from Piro village in Bhojpur district of Bihar.

The chief minister announced that the state government would give an ex-gratia amount to the next of the kin of the martyr, an official release said.

The amount of the ex-gratia was, however, not mentioned in the release.

Khan, who was a constable of 49th battalion of CRPF, was killed on Monday in a gunfight with terrorists who attempted to strike a CRPF camp at Karan Nagar area of Srinagar.

Kumar said in his condolence message that "The entire country would remember the supreme sacrifice of the brave son. The entire Bihar is with the martyr's family."
