Srinagar, Feb 8 IBNS | 10 months ago

Doctors are on a strike on Saturday in Jammu and Kashmir demanding the arrest of disgraced Minister of State for Health Shabir Ahmad Khan had had to resign over a charge of molestation by a lady doctor.

The strike has been called by the Kashmir Doctors Association but emergency services are outside its purview.

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah a day ago accepting the resignation of Khan tweeted, "I have received the resignation of the Minister of State for Health Shabir Khan and am forwarding the same to the Governor for acceptance."

The police on Thursday registered a case of molestation against Khan.

The police have started investigating the matter.

A police officer said a lady doctor, posted at the Winter Secretariat here, has lodged a complaint against the minister alleging he molested her in the Secretariat few days back.
