However, the government announced that a statement will be made in the House on the issue after the Question-Hour.The trouble started when Rashid wanted to know the reasons why Syed Shah was booked under PSA.
“Why those who killed Muslims in Jammu region, including at Samba, have not been booked under PSA”, Rashid asked. On this BJP members from Jammu reacted sharply and shouted at  him but nothing was heard in the din.
