Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir government Saturday terminated services of deceased Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani’s grandson “in the interest of the security of the state”.

Geelani’s grandson Anees-ul-Islam was appointed as research officer in SKICC under J-K Tourism department in 2016,  under Article 311 (2) (c) of the Constitution of India.

According to the order issued by additional secretary to the government (GAD) Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha of J-K is satisfied after considering the facts and circumstances of the case and on the basis of the information available that the activities of Anees-ul-Islam are such as to warrant his dismal from service.

Talking with The Kashmir Walla, Anees ul Islam said that he has not received any official communication about his termination.

“I am also hearing the same. But I have not received any official communication so far. I was on duty today,” he said.

The Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) administration under new rules can dismiss government employees from service if they or their family members are found to be  “sympathetic” to people accused under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) and Public Safety Act (PSA).

The government has also terminated services of a teacher from Doda. The orders have been issued in terms of Article 311 used in the termination of services of several other persons in Jammu and Kashmir in the recent past.

“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 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 the order, a copy of which lies with The Kashmir Walla.

“The Lieutenant Governor 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 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,” the order said.

The order also added: “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.”
