Srinagar: Continuing its crackdown against the government employees allegedly involved in anti-national activities, the Jammu and Kashmir administration on Saturday terminated services of late Syed Ali Geelani's grandson and a teacher from Doda district of the Union Territory.
“Whereas, the Lieutenant Governor is satisfied after considering the facts and circumstances of the case and on the basis of the information available that the activities of Mr Anees-ul-Islam, Research Officer in Sher-e-Kashmir International Convention Centre (SKICC), S/o Altaf Ahmad Shah R/o 119-MIG Green Park, Bemina, Srinagar A/P Bachpora, Srinagar are such as to warrant his dismissal from service,” reads an order issued by the General Administration Department (GAD) on Saturday.
It further reads that the LG is satisfied under sub-clause (c) of the proviso to clause (2) of Article 311 of the Constitution of India that in the interest of the security of the State, it is not expedient to hold an enquiry in the case of Islam.
“Accordingly, the Lieutenant Governor hereby dismisses Mr. Anees-ul-Islam, Research Officer in Sher-e-Kashmir International Convention Centre S/o Altaf Ahmad Shah R/o 119-MIG Green Park, Bemina, Srinagar A/P Bachpora, Srinagar from service, with immediate effect,” reads the order.
The government also ordered dismissal of Farooq Ahmad Butt, a teacher (RRET) in GMS Kathawa, Doda, from services in a separate order.
According to security agencies, Farooq's brother, Muhammad Amin Butt is a militant operating from Pakistan controlled Kashmir (PcK).
