New Delhi: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Monday said that the problem in Jammu and Kashmir was because of the 'problems' in India's leadership.

Speaking in Srinagar on the Independence Day of India, Mehbooba Mufti said that she could not comprehend why her government was being targeted for the situation in Jammu and Kashmir. Mufti, however, did not specifically target the ruling govt. She said that from the time of Jawaharlal Nehru, there were problems in the highest political positions. 

"Encounter have taken place in past and will continue to take place. But I don't understand what was my government's fault," said Mufti.

"I promise that action will be taken against police and security forces who went against my directions," said Mufti in Srinagar.

After the death of Hizbul Mujahideen Commander Burhan Wani, violent protests erupted in prominent regions across Kashmir, prompting security forces to clamp down on protesters with pellet guns.
