SRINAGAR: Mysterious killings are once again haunting the people of strife-torn Kashmir. Four people have been shot dead by unknown gunmen in last four days in the Valley. A 35-year-old painter was found in a pool of blood, with his throat slit, in his rented room at Arampora area of Sopore in Baramulla district in the afternoon.

The painter, identified as Haroon Rashid, was from Bihar. He was taken to a nearby hospital by the locals, where he was referred to Srinagar. Haroon succumbed to injuries at a Srinagar hospital.
