Ex-DIG BSF, ex-DSP, 3 others sentenced to 10 years in jail in 2006 sex scandal
Srinagar, Jun 6: A special CBI court in Chandigarh on Wednesday awarded 10 years in jail to five persons, including a former DSP and a former DIG BSF, in the 2006 Jammu and Kashmir sex scandal, a news agency reported.
Businessman Mehrajuddin Malik and then additional Advocate General of J&K Anil Sethi were acquitted, it reported.
The report said Mohammad Ashraf Mir, former DSP of J&K Police and KC Padhi, former DIG BSF, were imposed with a fine of Rs one lakh.
“Rest of the accused- Shabbir Ahmad Laway, Shabbir Ahmad Langoo, and Masood Ahmad, were imposed with a fine of Rs 50,000,” the report added.
The 2006 scandal had hit headlines after the J&K Police discovered two video CDs showing Kashmiri minors being sexually exploited.
The police questioned the minors. After questioning them, the police gathered names of 56 people allegedly involved in the scandal.
The case was transferred to the CBI in May 2006 after names of two J&K ministers, MLAs and other influential people emerged in the case.
