IOK authorities to act tough against Govt employees involved in pro-freedom activities

the authorities have decided to act tough against the government employees for their affiliation with the ongoing freedom movement that can lead to their dismissal for the service.

An order issued by the authorities on Thursday night announced the constitution of a committee headed by Chief Secretary of the territory BVR Subramanyam to take stock of all such cases that would be referred to it by the police and home departments.

The provision would be applicable to all those employees about whom there are cases of having taken part in the anti-India activities overtly or covertly. It will also apply to those who have served detention.

One of the critical parts of the fresh order is that the employees’ cases would be dealt with by the police on the basis of their interrogation reports and the collateral evidence which will dispense with the need for any inquiry, and once the cases are examined and recommended, the General Administration Department will issue orders for their dismissal from service as also suspension. This provision will also apply to such pending cases.
