Rubbishing the allegations of shielding ‘big fishes’ in Spurious drug scam, government has hinted of transferring the case to the newly constituted State Vigilance Commission possibly to investigate the role of politicians in the scam.
Sources in the government told KNS that the law ministry was closely monitoring the situation and it was most likely that the case may later be transferred to the State Vigilance Commission headed by former DGP, Kuldeep Khoda.
Law and Parliamentary affairs Minister Mir Saifullah while confirming to KNS that his ministry was mulling to send the case to SVC, Tuesday said that supplying spurious drugs to hospitals was a ‘criminal’ act and Govt. won’t spare anybody involved in the scandal.
“This is a criminal offense, how can we spare anybody involved in the scam. We are waiting for the Crime Branch report after which, if it was feasible, we may send the case to State Vigilance Commission for further investigation.” Mir Saifullah told KNS on Tuesday. He said that Govt. was seriously following the proceedings of the CB investigation and there was no way to hush up the scam.
Meanwhile Chief Vigilance Commissioner Kuldeep Khoda said that the commission was prepared to investigate the case. However he ruled out the possibility of commission taking a suo motto cognizance into the matter.
“Govt. needs to transfer the case to SVC if it wants us to investigate it.” Khoda told KNS.
Pertinently, Crime branch has already arrested some suspects including the owner of the company that has been accused of supplying the drugs to valley hospitals.
