'Who next' is nowadays the question on the lips of almost every Kashmiri after the Central Bureau of Investigation started arresting top politicians, bureaucrats, police and paramilitary officials in connection with the sex scandal that has rocked the Valley.
"This minister...that official," is the information with almost everyone in Kashmir these days, which even the investigating agency might find difficult to gather at times.
"Any news about the sex racket has become part of our breakfast. The first thing I do is grab the newspaper and read all about the scandal. And, it really makes me angry if the newspaper is with someone else," says Mohammad Ashraf (name changed), a government employee.
"After hearing from various quarters that the CBI can anytime raid the Civil Secretariat and arrest top officials in connection with the sex racket case, we are extra alert," he adds.
"We too want to know each and everything about the sex scandal. Isn't it our right," he asks. Ashraf and Zakir are not the only curious ones. "Sex sells in India and Kashmir is no exception. Everybody is eager to know more and more about the sex scandal," says Farooq Ahmed, a businessman.
