6 J&K Govt Employees Sacked Over ‘Terror Links’, 2 Cops Among Those Dismissed

UT government employees will not get a passport unless a clearance from the departments

Mumbai: On Wednesday, the J&K government sacked 6 of its employees including 2 police constables, for allegedly having terror links and working as underground workers.

According to reports, these steps were initiated after a designated committee in the Union Territory was mandated to scrutinize cases under Article 311(2)(c) of the Constitution which recommended the removal of the six employees from government service over terror links.

Under Article 311(2)(c), “The President or the Governor, as the case may be, is satisfied that in the interest of the security of the State, it is not expedient to hold such inquiry.”

The UT administration had earlier decided said government employees would not be issued a passport unless they got a vigilance clearance from their respective departments.

Earlier In July this year, the 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 organizations, officials said on Saturday.
