Touch fails for group member

Hello all,

I have a group - grpchg - which has 2 members
1) grpmem1
2) chgmem1

The first member creates a dir and gives write permission to itself and for the group - and reads like this:

drwxrwsr-x

However the other member is unable to create files in the dir. I even gave drwxrwxr-x permission

He is using the touch command to create it. I cannot give 777 permission which is a security violation.

Is that a problem with touch command - It is a simple touch with no extra options:

touch ${sftp_log}

The file being created is also new.

Unfortunately I cannot login as the other user to see myself on the problem, so any help is much appreciated.
