Srinagar, Jul 31: After the state Governor NN Vohra dismissed the opposition's allegations of Omar Abdullah's involvement in the 2006 Sex Scandal, the Chief Minister returned to his office on Friday, Jul 31.

The governor, on Thursday, Jul 30 rejected Omar Abdullah's resignation and asked him to continue discharging his duties as a Chief Minister stating that the allegations against him have been proved to be false.

"There's no basis for him to seek resignation in view of the information supplied to the governor by the Union home ministry about the allegations levelled against him (Omar) in the assembly on Jul 28," Vohra said.

The Chief Minister who submitted a resignation as soon as his named was raised in the scam by PDP leaders, said that he is satisfied to have gotten a clean chit from the Governor.

"I am satisfied that I have come out clean. Had I tried to give clarification, nobody would have accepted my version. So it's good that the head of the state has given me a clean chit, supported by the information provided by the Union home ministry," he said.

He also thanked the people of the state for standing by him during the crisis.
