Srinagar: An emergency meeting PPP was presided over by Engineer Hilal Ahmad War was held at the Rajbagh Headquarters of the Peopleâ€™s Political Party (PPP) Â wherein it was declared that the party wonâ€™t allow the culprits of the infamous 2006 sex scandal to go scot-free. The meeting was held in response to the â€˜clean chitâ€™ that the main accused Raman Mattoo, a former Minister, Iqbal Khandey, Principal Secretary (Planning) former Additional Advocate General Anil Sethi etc.were given by Two main victims-cum-witnesses who Â were Â being forced to retract from their earlier statement under a big conspiracy to Â pave the way for CBI court to give â€˜Clean Chitâ€™ to the accused Ministers, Bureaucrats and Police officers etc.Recently two key witnesses and ‘victim’ turned hostile in the Kashmir sex scandal case, a 25-year-old ‘rape victim’ and a 45 year old Police Constable, key witness in the case has retracted from their statement in the CBI special court in Chandigarh.
Chairman PPP, Hilal Ahmed War said Kashmiris will never forgive the culprits of the well planned sex racket through which innocent girls were lured and exploited. â€œIt was a well planned policy to involve innocent Kashmiri girls, both by blackmail and temptation, into flesh trade, so that immorality and promiscuity could be infused into Kashmiri society which would be a great impediment to the freedom movement,â€ said War adding â€œAgencies have always been Â on a hunt for innocent people in Kashmir to not only dilute our values but also to draw the attention away from the Kashmir issue.â€
It was decided in the meeting that PPP would fight tooth and nail to expose all the people involved in the scandal. â€œWe will not forgive anybody,â€ said PPP Chairman. He said PPP has a complete list of all the bureaucrats, ministers, politicians, businessmen and everyone else who was a part of the racket in one way or the other. â€œWe will definitely come out with the detailed, complete list at the right time,â€ said War adding â€œIf an honest investigation would have been carried out, we would have seen the real face of a number of our ministers and bureaucrats and some so called respectable citizens.â€
Mr.War said, â€œSome favourite Â Ministers of PDP- Congress Coalition Government ,involved in the infamous Sex Scam 2006, were left scot- free by CBI, few of them Cabinet Ministers in Present Govt. are also using their influence to hush up the case fearing that if the case would be investigated their names would figureâ€. PPP Chief, appealed the Jammu and Kashmir Govt to reinvestigate the infamous Sex Scam of 2006 and punish all those Ministers, Political leaders, Bureaucrats and other officials involved in the exploiting underaged girls inkling those who were let-off by CBI, failing which PPP will be constrained to take the case in Peopleâ€™s Court. He further said that we will come up with a Solid Evidence â€“cum-Proof.
The infamous sec racket, had shook the valley, protests from all quarters had shaken the administration. The political parties in power, political parties without power, separatists, social groups, citizens, lawyers and even bollywood had demanded answers from the government as well as a thorough probe. The Government of Jammu and Kashmir had handed over the case to the federal investigation agency of India, the Central Bureau of Investigations, but has saved the favourite ones. This has satisfied none. According to reports Nine Ministers of the previous coalition government figured in the 2004 investigations and Mufti Sayeed personally intervened to save his government.
He said his party cannot allow eyewash in the name of probe. â€œKashmiris will stand up and we will make sure nobody among the exploiters is spared,â€ he said.
War also threatened to launch a full-fledged agitation if the culprits were not brought to the book.
â€œIf these criminals are not named and punished, we will not take it hands down.â€ He said that the girls were first exploited and are now being threatened into submission. â€œThey are threatening these girls to fall in line with them to save these people,â€ said War â€œWe will never allow this. These girls were first victimized physically and now they are constantly being harassed to hush up the truth.â€
