Hi Vinode,
I believe you have misunderstood the use of Variable = READ [# Stream,]

If you want to get the last stream you have to write the code like this:

Public Sub Main()

  Dim hFile As File
  Dim sFile As String

  hFile = Open "./my-demo.txt" For Read
  Seek #hFile, -4
  Read #hFile, sFile, 4
  Print sFile
