A group of women raised 'azaadi' slogans during a function attended by Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti prompting the state government to order a probe into the matter.
"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 Tuesday," an official spokesperson said.
Mehbooba had to beat a hasty retreat from the venue in the wake of shouting of slogans by the members of women self help group, followed by unruly scenes during which few chairs were flung in the air.
