SRINAGARS: Accusing State Government of implementing different yard sticks for different people, Joint Amalgam of Doctors and Paramedical Associations, Kashmir (JADPA) Monday expressed resentment the former Health Minister Shabir Khan is given special treatment and is being shielded by the government in molestation case.

In a statement JADPA has said that as a mark of protest, the amalgam will observe one hour token strike on Tuesday at 2 pm in all hospitals and offices.

JADPA has expressed resentment and has said that it is irony that tainted Congress politician is attending the Assembly session without any kind of hesitation and the accused has no repentance.

   “Tarun Tejpal who was booked in a similar kind of offence faced the course of law in true sense unlike the culprit Shabir Khan who roams free under the label of terming himself as Indian nationalist,” the statement reads.

JADPA also condemned the transfer of Investigating Officer of this particular case by the government and said that it makes quite vivid that the authorities are keeping a lenient view in this case which has astonished the whole medical fraternity and the victim in particular.

Pertinently, a lady doctor had slapped molestation charges against former Health Minister Shabir Khan and the accused is out after securing interim bail from the High Court.
