Srinagar, Oct 9: Demanding immediate arrest of accused in fake drug scam and sacking of former Health Minister, Sham Lal Sharma for his alleged involvement in the case, ANHAD and Jammu and Kashmir RTI Movement staged a sit in on Wednesday.
Holding placards and banners, the members and volunteers of these groups staged a sit-in at Press Enclave here. "We demand immediate arrest of the accused in the scam and punishment according to law. It is ironical that government is resorting to inordinate delay in acting against the accused who still enjoy power," said president of RTI Movement, Dr Sheikh Ghulam Rasool.
"This indicates the intentions and seriousness of government in tackling this sensitive issue. Our prime demand is to sack former Health Minister Sham Lal Sharma immediately," he said.
