Jammu & Kashmir government today terminated four employees, including president of Doctors Association of Kashmir (DAK), for their alleged involvement in anti-national and terror-related activities.
An order has been issued to this effect by the general administration department (GAD). Those dismissed include a doctor, a police constable, a teacher, and a laboratory bearer in the higher education department.
They have been sacked by the UT administration by invoking 311 (2) (c) of the Constitution of India, which empowers it to do so without an inquiry.
Those sacked include Dr. Nissar-ul-Hassan, assistant professor in Srinagar’s SMHS hospital, Salam Rather (laboratory bearer in Higher Education department), Abdul Majeed Bhat (constable ) and Farooq Ahmad Mir (teacher).
Officials said that this is part of UT administration’s war against the terrorist ecosystem and its key stakeholders, who were surreptitiously inducted into the government machinery by political regimes of different shades in the past.
In the last 3 years, the Union Territory administration has invoked 311 (2) (c) of the Constitution of India to sack more than 50 such employees for their involvement in anti-national and terror activities.
