Mufti Sayeed's much publicized 'Healing Touch' is paying dividends. Two of his ministers, Raman Matoo and G. A. Mir, have been arrested in connection with the Kashmir sex scandal. The only Kashmiri Pandit in the cabinet, Raman Matoo, held the portfolio of Industries while as the fifty year old G. A. Mir was a tourism minister in the healing touch ministry. Both are still lawmakers in the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly. Raman is the MLA (Member of Legislative Assembly) from Habba Kadal, the home of the kingpin Sabeena. G. A. Mir is the ruling party MLA from South Kashmir.
Congress, famous for it's Operation Bluestar, the 1975 Emergency and the massacre of Sikhs in 1984 rules Kashmir presently. Ghulam Nabi Azad is the Chief Minister. He recently justified killing of innocents by the Indian Army.
The list of people involved so far include:
Raman Matoo, MLA and former minister: Arrested
G.A. Mir, MLA and former minister: Arrested
Anil Sethi, Additional Advocate General: Declared proclaimed offender
K C Padhi, BSF DIG: Arrested
M. Ashraf, Deputy Superintendent of Police: Arrested
It is yet to be seen what the consequence of these arrests will be? Will it reveal an intricate web of corruption, sleaze and abuse of innocents by the high and mighty or will it die a silent death?
