KL Report


The social and religious organizations active in Kashmir Friday demanded the sacking of Shabir Khan, MoS health who has been booked on molestation charges following a complaint by a lady doctor.

The doctors association also demanded stern action against what it called “the shameless minister.”

“The shameless Minister should be immediately arrested and stern action should be taken against him. It is a matter of shame that it has not taken any action even after so many days of the complaint,” Nissar-ul-Hassan, the association president told Kashmir Life,

Civil society and the religious leaders of Kashmir also are aghast against the government for “not taking an immediate action against Khan.”

Pertinently, J&K health minister Shabir Khan has been summoned to Srinagar by police after a lady doctor registered a case against him. The case was registered at police station Shahid Gunj Police station in Srinagar under FIR no 14/2014 and  sections 354 and 509 RPC.

Initial reports revealed that Khan, during his recent stay in Srinagar, had called the lady doctor to his retiring room. Apart from suggestive talking, he is accused of making sexual advances as well. He is accused of telling her that she should come to his residence and prepare the Kehwa.

“She was compelled to visit him in the winter secretariat twice,” one source privy of the complaint said. “The lady doctor has accused the minister of making her sit in the retiring room and not with the people in the office.”
