Srinagar: The State Government Wednesday ordered an inquiry into the incident of raising azadi slogans by a women self help group members at a function attended by Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti at the Sher-i-Kashmir International Conference Centre (SKICC).

“The Government has appointed Commissioner/Secretary of Industries and Commerce Department Shailendra Kumar as inquiry officer to enquire into circumstances which led to commotion and unruly situation during a function organised by state Rural Livelihood mission at SKICC yesterday,” an official spokesman said.

Mehbooba had to beat a hasty retreat from the venue in the wake of shouting of azadi slogans by the members of women self help group, followed by unruly scenes during which few chairs were flung in the air.

India Today reported that the CM was “heckled” by a woman which led to the commotion.
