Srinagar: Five people have been held guilty and two acquitted by the Chandigarh district court in the 2006 Jammu-Kashmir sex scandal case, reports said on Wednesday.
As per reports the court will pronounce the quantum of the punishment on June 4.
The guilty include former J&K DSP Mohammed Ashraf Mir, former DIG, BSF, KC Padhi, while businessman Mehrajuddin Malik and former J&K general advocate Anil Sethi have been acquitted in the case.
The scandal came to light in 2006 when the J&K police discovered two video CDs showing Kashmiri minors being sexually exploited. The minors were forced into the sex trade and were exploited sexually by politicians, bureaucrats and police officials.
The case was transferred to the CBI after names of two J&K ministers and several MLAs emerged during the state police investigation.
