They are being killed for unknown reasons. This is the reason why Srinagar is closed today. And the call is being made by the Hurriyat leaders, said a local.

On Sunday, a former militant was shot at by unidentified persons. He was reportedly rushed to the hospital, before he succumbed to his injuries. This shooting was the latest in a string of similar incidents in Sopore.
