The chief minister expressed concern over the disturbing videos being circulated on social media and has directed the police to “submit a detailed report about the incidents so that necessary action is taken”, official sources said.
They said Mehbooba, while expressing concern over the incidents caught on camera, has maintained that such incidents were “unacceptable”.
