Srinagar: While the postmortem report established torture as the reason behind the custodial death of Najim Rashid, life in the Sopore area resumed back to normal on Thursday after four days of protest and tension.

It is noteworthy that Rashid, who was arrested for alleged links with terrorists and in connection with a murder case, died in custody setting Sopore on fire.
