The Jammu and Kashmir administration has ordered the constitution of a committee, which is to be headed by Chief Secretary BVR Subrahmanyam, to examine the cases of those employees found involved in “anti-national activities” overtly or covertly, reported The Tribune. The panel will be scrutinising and recommending cases for dismissal of their services.
The newspaper reported that the action would be taken by invoking Section 311 of the Constitution that is now applicable to J-K. The committee will take note of all such cases that would be referred to it by the police and home departments.
It will also apply to those who have served detention, the newspaper reported. As per the order, 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.
After 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.
Quoting unnamed sources, the newspaper reported that social media activities of the employees, even under fake identity, would also fall in the category of anti-national activities.
