No militant group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
Earlier, this morning police recovered body of 25-years old Mohammad Shafi Sofi from Ratnipora road in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district with hands tied with a rope.
A police official said initial reports suggest that that deceased was tortured.
“There were multiple deep cut wounds on his legs and other body parts. There was a rope around his neck which indicates the possibility of strangulation besides torture,” he said.
He said police have registered a case and launched investigations.
The deceased was working as salesman in a business unit in Srinagar
