Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir government on Wednesday ordered a departmental inquiry into the conduct of two teams of doctors who carried out autopsy of the two women allegedly raped and murdered in Shopian.

"We have ordered departmental inquiry into the conduct of two teams of doctors who performed autopsy of Aasiya (17) and Neelofar (22)," state's Health Minister Sham Lal Sharma said, adding severe action would be initiated against them if found guilty.
