Sofi was working as salesman at an electronics shop here, the official said.
The body was taken to the sub-district hospital at Pampore for autopsy and initial reports suggested that Sofi was tortured, he added.
There were multiple deep cut wounds on his legs and other body parts, the spokesperson said adding there was a rope around his neck which indicates the possibility of strangulation besides torture.
