In the ongoing investigation of the murder case of TS Wazir, the Transport Association of Jammu has demanded that the investigation should be paced up and the culprits should be behind bars.
While speaking to JK Media, a Transport Association Leader said, “we all know how Wazir Sahab has come forward for the people of J&K.
