Srinagar, Oct 8 (UNI) Peoples Democratic Party, a partner in the Congress -led coalition government, today suspended its former minister and sitting Member of Legislative Assembly Ghulam Hassan Khan for his alleged involvement in the sex racket case.
PDP president Mehbooba Mufti said in the wake of the High Court judgment on the sex racket case this afternoon, Khan has been suspended from the party.
