No sooner the proceeding of Legislative Council started on Thursday, the Opposition grilled the government over its “inaction” against the IAS officer who is said to be reason behind the ousted DC Baramulla’s suicide attempt.

The Opposition, both NC and Congress, while questioning the government inaction against the IAS officer assembled in the Well and protested.

Naeem Akhtar, the state education minister, was seen losing his calm over the relentless ruckus created by Opposition. He shouted: “If you have guts, then identify the officer.” Without mincing the words, Akhtar continued, “If I start speaking who has done what, then you people won’t find a space to hide yourself.”

Amid heated exchange of words, the chairman of the house adjourned the house.

Interestingly, the IAS issue is rocking both the house proceedings after DC Baramulla, an IAS officer, attempted suicide. Although she was transferred after the matter was raised in Legislative Assembly, the house members have been continuously demanding the action against the other IAS officer involved in the matter.
