The market in Leh district was shut down in protest against the alleged molestation of the final year student. The committee later submitted a memorandum addressed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to regional authorities at Leh.

They demanded the setting up of a fast-track court, a SIT to probe the matter and appointment of a special prosecutor.

The state government' suspension order has said Khajuria will remain attached to the Directorate of Health Service, Jammu, during the period of investigation. But the protesters have sought his immediate termination.
