After the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen Chief Burhan Wani, Kashmir has been in a state of distress. The valley is under unrest for 104 days now and now the Jammu and Kashmir government has terminated over a dozen of employees for their alleged involvement in the situation.
A top official was reported saying that the orders have been issued by the J&K government.
The officer said ”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 report was forwarded to the Chief Secretary by the state Police and he further directed concerned departments to terminate the services of these employees.
The situation has been rather grim in the valley with communication and internet services being banned for over a month. Over 12,000 people were injured and approx 90 killed following the turbulence. These terminated officials are from various departments including Public health, food supplies and education. And Article 126 of the state constitution has been invoked for the same.
These dismissed officials are already reported to have been charged under the Public Safety Act (PSA). The Center with aide from J&K government is trying to bring normalcy back in the valley soon.
