The Jammu and Kashmir government has issued orders to dismiss over a dozen of its employees for their alleged involvement in the ongoing unrest, a top official said on Thursday. “Reports on their anti-national activities prepared by the state police were forwarded to the Chief Secretary, who then directed respective heads of departments to issue orders terminating their services,” the officer said.
The dismissed employees include an assistant registrar of Kashmir University, besides others from education, revenue, public health, engineering and food supplies. “The state government invoked Article 126 of the state constitution to carry out the action,” he added.
Authorities said some of the dismissed employees were already booked under the Public Safety Act (PSA), while others have evaded arrest.
At least 91 people have been killed and over 12,000 injured in the last 104 days of the ongoing unrest since July 9, a day after the killing of top militant Burhan Wani.
