Over 50 govt employees sacked for anti-national and terror activities in last 3 years

New Delhi: The government of Jammu and Kashmir on November 22 dismissed four government employees in the union territory.

The sacked employees include the president of the Doctors Association of Kashmir (DAK) along with a teacher, a policeman and a lab bearer for their involvement in anti-national and terror-related activities.

According to the official notice, they were terminated from service in terms of sub-clause (c) of the proviso to clause (2) of Article 311 of the Constitution of India.

Under the proviso (C) of Article 311(2), the government is empowered to terminate an employee without recourse to the normal procedure if it is satisfied that his/her retention in public service is prejudicial to the security of the state.

The government order says that this is part of the UT administration's action against the terrorist ecosystem and its key stakeholders.

In the last three years, the J&K administration has invoked 311 (2) (c) of the Constitution of India to sack more than 50 employees for their involvement in anti-national and terror activities, according to several media reports.
