"Though the Jammu Kashmir Chief Minister (Mehbooba Mufti) has announced an enquiry, but those responsible for this outrageous act of moving a Kashmiri youth tied to a jeep through 8-10 villages must be held accountable and punished," the party said.

The video of the youth tied to the bonnet of a jeep had gone viral on Friday. The incident is said to have occurred on April 9.
