Suspected terrorists on Friday opened fire near the gate of a four-star hotel at Pantha chowk-Parimpora bypass road on the outskirts of the city, killing an employee.

The terrorists opened fire near the gate of hotel Silver Star near Lasjan around 4:20 pm, resulting in death of one of its employees identified as Farooq Ahmad, police said.
