Stone pelters on Monday (April 15) attacked PDP Chief Mehbooba Mufti’s convoy in J&K’s Anantnag, when they were returning from a shrine, officials said.
Mehbooba had gone to a shrine at Khirram in Anantnag district to pay her obeisance and was returning to Bijbehaera when the incident took place, they added.
One of the spare vehicles in the former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister’s motorcade was damaged in the stone-pelting and the driver was hurt, the officials said.
Others in the entourage, including the PDP president, escaped unhurt.
Mehbooba is contesting the ongoing Lok Sabha election from the Anantnag seat, which she had won in 2014 Lok Sabha Elections.
The south Kashmir constituency, spread over the four districts of Anantnag, Kulgam, Pulwama and Shopian, is going to the polls in three phases from 29 April to 6 May.
