No inquiry ordered in Peerzada case CM

Maintaining that no new inquiry was ordered in case of alleged use of unfair means in exam to benefit the son of Education Minister, Peerzada Mohammad Sayeed, the Chief Minister Omar Abdullah today said that anyone found guilty in the report of Crime Branch, which was handed over the file, won’t be spared.

Replying to questions on the sidelines of State Level Education Conference at University of Jammu, about probe in the case and the likely action against the minister, Chief Minister said, “No new inquiry has been ordered. It is the job of Crime Branch to look into such allegations. I have only handed over the file to the Crime Branch and given them seven days time to give their report.”

He further said, “When the report comes to me, the next step would be taken. If anybody found guilty, he will not be spared.”

While the Minister for School Education Peerzada Mohammad Sayeed, who is in the middle of the controversy, refuted the allegations and described it as a conspiracy. Peerzada said, “I welcome the decision of the Chief Minister who has sent the file to Crime Branch. This is an old case. Why did anyone not raise it three years back? My son is studying in part one now. There is a tug of war among the officials of Board of School Education (BOSE) which has resulted in the controversy. It is also aimed at targeting me and maligning my image on the political front.” 

“I deny all these reports in the media. Probe was conducted and all such allegations found baseless,” he said.
