Jammu Kashmir. Tightening the noose around the anti-national activities, the J &K Government terminated five government employees for having terror links.

Article 311 of the Constitution deals with ‘Dismissal, removal or reduction in rank of persons employed in civil capacities under the Union or a State’.

According to the reports, Police constable Tawseef Ahmed Mir, Pulwama, Computer operator Ghulam Hassan Parray, Srinagar, Arshid Ahmad Das, a teacher from Awantipora, Police constable Shahid Hussain Rather, Baramulla & Nursing Orderly, Health Dept Sharafat Khan, Kupwara has been terminated under provision 311(2)(C) of the Constitution.

Tawseef Ahmed Mir was actively working for the terror outfit Hizb-ul-Mujahideen and had even tried to kill two of his police colleagues. In June 2017, Tawseef along with terror associates tried to kill an SPO. Tawseef’s father was a terrorist in the Al-Jihad outfit and he was killed during an encounter in 1997. Tawseef subsequently joined the police force but covertly started working for the terror outfit.

Ghulam Hassan was booked in 2009 by the police for organising a violent protest in Parimpora. Ghulam Hassan was tasked by the separatist groups to motivate the youth to join terror ranks.

While Arshid Ahmad was actively involved in JeI activities. He was close to the terror outfit Hizb-Ul-Mujahideen and supported its terrorist activities under the guise of a teacher.

Shahid Hussain Rather was initially appointed as an SPO in 2005 and his terror activities became known for the first time in 2009. He was arrested and subsequent interrogation led to the arrest of seven more persons and the recovery of a large cache of arms and ammunition.

Over two dozen government employees, including senior officials, have been terminated since the formation of a special task force (STF), tasked to scrutinise cases of employees suspected of activities requiring action under Article 311(2) (C) of the Constitution.

In July last year, as many as 11 employees of the J&K governments have been sacked for terror links. Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin’s two sons and former Hurriyat chairman late Syed Ali Shah Geelani’s grandson was among them.

The NIA had tracked terror funding trials of both persons and they have been found involved in raising, receiving, collecting, and transferring funds through hawala transactions for terror activities of Hizbul Mujahideen.
