Notably, among the participants were Naib Tehsildar and personnel from various other government departments.

Government sources divulged to the news agency, that approximately 26 government employees, including a Naib Tehsildar and an Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI), have been served show cause notices for their purported involvement in the aforementioned political gathering. The incident, which occurred several days ago in Khevra, Rajouri, saw a diverse array of attendees, comprising officials from different professional backgrounds such as engineering, healthcare, and education.

Addressing the matter, Deputy Commissioner Om Prakash Bhagat emphasized the need for accountability, directing department heads to solicit explanations from the implicated employees.
