SRINAGAR: State Vigilance Commission in its sitting has summoned the Director Agriculture Kashmir for his personal appearance before the Commission on 01.08.2016 for explaining the reasons of inaction on his part in a complaint lodged before the Commission by one Bilal Ahmad, regarding appointment on fake and forged certificates of B.Sc Agriculture degree obtained from Dr. B.R.Ambedkar University Agra.
The State Vigilance Commission while taking a strong note of illegal appointment of one Aijaz Ahmad S/O Ab. Hamid R/O Hardutoora Anantnag, on the basis of a fake B.Sc. Agriculture Degree obtained by him from Dr.B.R.Ambedkar University Agra, has summoned the Director Agriculture Kashmir to appear personally before the Commission on 01-08-2016.
In this backdrop a complaint was lodged by one Bilal Ahmad Mantoo R/O Aadbal Dooru Anantnag regarding illegal appointment of Aijaz Ahmad S/O Abdul Hamid R/O Hardutoora Anantnag, on the basis of a fake B.Sc. Agriculture Degree Certificate obtained by him from Dr. B.R.Ambedkar University, Agra and the State Vigilance Commission taking cognizance of the complaint sought a report from the Registrar, Dr.B.R.Ambedkar University Agra.
The report submitted before this Commission by Registrar Dr.B.R.Ambedkar University Agra was forwarded to Departmental Vigilance Officer, Directorate of Agriculture, Kashmir for his recommendations to the Director Agriculture Kashmir who in turn would submit the final action taken report to the Commission by or before 04-04-2016. The Director Agriculture Kashmir failed to submit his action taken report in the matter by the deadline fixed by this Commission.
Pertinent to mention here that despite the knowledge of this illegal appointment on a fake degree, the Director Agriculture Kashmir has failed to take action against the culprit who is still continuing in the Govt. job till date despite his appointment on a fake degree.
The State Vigilance Commission, while taking a serious note of the matter has sought personal appearance of the Director Agriculture Kashmir before this Commission on 01-08-2016, to explain his continued inaction by him in such an open fraudulent case and the case is being referred to the Crime Branch for registering a case in this regard.
