J & K RTI Movement has sought stern action against the Health department officers, including the Director Health Services Kashmir Dr Saleem-ur-Rehman in a sex exploitation case registered after a complaint of a nurse.
“We ask the state government to ensure a free and fair investigation on a fast track followed by stringent punishment which should serve as a deterrent for people who resort to heinous crimes like this,” a statement of the J & K RTI Movement said on Tuesday.
The statement added that these happenings are very serious and indicators of deep societal rot. “The government apathy in stopping such crimes has further added to the vulnerability of women folk,” the statement said
“We demand the trial be transparent and time-bound and free of any pressure or influence so that justice is done and the faith of the people in the integrity of justice system is upheld,” it said.
