Officials said Mehbooba had gone to a shrine at Khirram in Anantnag district to pay offering and was returning to Bijbehara when the incident occurred.
The officials said one of the spare vehicles in the former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister’s motorcade was damaged in the stone-pelting. The driver was hurt, the officials said.
The PDP president, however, escaped unhurt.
Mehbooba is contesting the ongoing Lok the south Kashmir constituency. It is spread over the four districts of Anantnag, Kulgam, Pulwama and Shopian.
