Srinagar, Oct 12: The Jammu and Kashmir government on Thursday ordered an inquiry into a photographic campaign that featured separatist leader Asiya Andrabi’s picture under the category of women achievers.

The Dukhtaran-e-Millat leader’s image was displayed alongside former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, Puducherry Lieutenant Governor Kiran Bedi, Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti and Nobel Peace Laureate Mother Teresa’s photographs.

The child care wing of Social Welfare Department in Anantnag district’s Brang block used all their photographs together in the ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’ campaign.

Police officers and several other local and civil authorities were present at the campaign launch on Wednesday.

The child care wing is headed by Sajad Lone, a BJP nominee in the PDP-BJP ruling alliance.
