Srinagar, June 16: The Economic Offences Wing, Srinagar (Crime Branch Kashmir), has taken a significant step forward in a corruption case by producing the chargesheet before the Court of Additional Special Judge Anti-Corruption Kashmir. The chargesheet has been filed against Mohammad Shafi Malla, the former Administrative Officer (Policy) of SKIMS Soura, and Dr. A.G Ahangar, the former Director of SKIMS Soura.
