The Jammu and Kashmir government has dismissed six employees on Wednesday for allegedly having terror links and working as over ground workers. Among those dismissed were two police constables.

Government has started with such steps after a designated committee in the Union territory mandated to scrutinize cases under Article 311(2)(c) of the Constitution recommended the removal of the six employees from government service over terror links. 

The order came days after the UT administration issued instructions to officials on carrying out periodic character and antecedent’s verification of government employees. 

Earlier in July, government had dismissed 11 of its employees, including sons of Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin and two from the police department, for allegedly working as overground workers for terrorist organisations, reportedly.
