Two cops among six govt staffers sacked in J&K for alleged links with militants

The Jammu and Kashmir administration sacked six more government employees, including two policemen, on Wednesday for their alleged links with militants and their overground networks.

With this, the total number of government employees sacked by lieutenant governor Manoj Sinha has risen to 23 since the formation of a task force earlier this year to scrutinise government employees suspected of activities requiring action under Article 311(2)(c) of the Constitution.

This law was extended to J&K after abrogation of its special status on August 5, 2019, and one of its provisions says that retention of a person in public service, if prejudicial to the security of the state, can be terminated without recourse to normal inquiry.

The fresh batch of sacked officials included two J&K police constables – Jaffer Hussain Butt from Kishtawar, who figures in a National Investigation Agency (NIA) charge sheet and is currently on bail, and Showkat Ahmad Khan of Budgam, who was detained under Public Safety Act (PSA) in 2019 for his alleged help in looting weapons from a legislator’s house.

Two teachers sacked from service were identified as Liyaqat Ali Kakroo of Baramullah, who was detained under PSA but acquitted from both the cases filed against him but a fresh first information report (FIR), regarding recovery of grenades, has been filed against him in 2021, and Abdul Hamid Wani of Anantnag, allegedly a former militant who was active in organising protests and speaking during protest gatherings in 2016.

Muhammad Rafi Butt from Kishtwar, a junior assistant in roads and building department, figures in an NIA charge-sheet and has allegedly provided logistical support to militants. Tariq Mehmood from Poonch, a range officer in the forest department, is allegedly an overground worker of militants and was arrested in 2010 as well.

The five-member special task force was constituted on April 21 this year, headed by the additional director general of police (CID) in J&K, to scrutinise cases of suspected employees and compile records of such employees and refer to the committee for action.

Earlier this year, the government employees whose services were terminated included a deputy superintendent of J&K Police, Devinder Singh, and two sons of two sons of Hizbul Mujahideen and United Jihad Council chief Syed Salahuddin.
