Another woman participant said, "They are trying to exploit us".
Witnesses said the women alleged that they had been tricked into attending the event organised by the state rural development department.
Reports said that amidst anger of the women participants as the chief minister appeared in the lawns of SKICC after delivering lecture inside, the angry participants started raising "Azadi slogans" and threw chairs, water bottles and other furniture towards the dice.
The show of defiance by women comes at a time girl students are increasingly participating in pro- azadi protests in the Valley, some of them throwing stones at the security forces.
Mufti, who had to leave 20 minutes after the programme began on Tuesday morning, played down what had happened. "Women were present in large numbers and probably a woman fainted". Others panicked. It is an important event.
Mehbooba had to be escorted out of the event by her security when the situation turned ugly and some of the protesters tried to rush inside the enclosure where she was addressing the gathering. As the women, numbering in hundreds, raised slogans, police bundled them into vehicles and sent them back to their villages.
Another woman from Pulwama said the volunteers of SHG were told that they would be taken to Srinagar for a picnic. "She (Mufti) inspected the stalls and then went to the dais", said an official present at the venue.
Security agencies had warned the organisers that trouble was brewing and that the chief minister should stay away, an official said.
Several women were injured and one was shifted to hospital.
"Commenting on the incident, Omar Abdullah, former Chief Minister and National Conference working president, tweeted: "... participants came out shouting pro-freedom slogans.
