Probe ordered in Tricolor Slip incident in Jammu Kashmir


Srinagar: In an embarrassing moment, the tricolor fell off the post when and Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti wanted to hoist it at Bakshi stadium here on the occasion of Independence Day.

A probe has been ordered into the incident.

On Monday, Mehbooba, who was hoisting the national flag as Chief Minister for the first time, pulled the string attached to the post only to see the tricolor fall from the post and land on the ground.

Amid the embarrassing situation, two personnel from the security detail of the Chief Minister held the flag in their hands till Mehbooba gave the ceremonial salute to the flag.

As Mehbooba left the stage for inspecting the contingents of the police and paramilitary forces, the security staff at the Bakshi Stadium hurriedly set the flag right and hoisted it atop the post.

“An inquiry was ordered immediately into the incident so as to fix the responsibility,” Kumar told PTI.
