After the opposition PDP leader and former deputy chief minister Muzaffar Beig leveled allegations of involvement of the CM in the infamous sex scandal that had rocked Srinagar in 2006, Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Tuesday submitted his resignation to Governor N N Vohra.
Omar’s name figures at 102 on the list of offenders involved in the sex scandal, the opposition alleged. The Union Home ministry and CBI said that Omar Abdullah’s name is not in the list of the accused in the sex scandal.
In his resignation letter, Omar asked the governor to initiate an enquiry into the allegations leveled against him within a specified time frame.
Governor Vohra refused to accept Omar’s resignation saying that he will continue to hold the office till a further decision is taken.
