We all are quite aware of the violence that erupted in Srinagar over the alleged sexual exploitation of 43 local girls by top-notch police officials, bureaucrats and politicians in this conservative, Muslim-majority state.
In this intervening time, the Jammu and Kashmir High Court used suo-motto cognizance of media reports regarding this scandal, ordering the police to disclose the names of police officials and politicians who are allegedly involved in this racket.
Some positive development in this regard was done as the CBI, in connection with this sex racket that rocked the state, arrested Deputy Superintendent of Police Ashraf Mir. Ashraf is one among 11 persons who are culpabale for raping a teenager.
The agency, this time is all set to take strict mode against a deputy inspector general in the BSF and a noted lawyer if they botched to appear for a TIP.
Seems this time J&K government is all set to wash the blame that they are trying to ‘cover up the scandal’. Moreover, infact they do not have any other option left as well, as J&K is not in a state to face some fresh protests and government can’t ignore and prolong this as the scandal has conquered public attention.
