SRINAGAR, Sep 22: Jammu and Kashmir government has sacked six more employees over alleged militant links including those working as overground workers for the militants groups.
Two constables, two teachers, a senior officer of forest department and an employee in R&B department are among those sacked, they said.
Two of those removed from services are from Kishtwar district and one each belong to Anantnag, Baramulla, Poonch and Budgam districts, officials said, according to local news agencies.
The government issued the order after a designated committee in J&K formed to scrutinise and recommend cases under Article 311(2)(c) of the Constitution of India recommended their removal from government service over militants links.
This provision gives the government the power to sack employees without an inquiry if "the President or the Governor, as the case may be, is satisfied that in the interest of the security of the State, it is not expedient to hold such inquiry".

The order came days after the UT administration issued instructions on periodic character and antecedents verification of government employees.

According to instructions issued by the general administration department of J&K, every government employee is mandatorily required to maintain absolute integrity, honesty and allegiance to the Union of India and its Constitution and not do anything that is unbecoming of a government servant.
Earlier this year, the government had sacked at least eleven of its employees over same of allegations.
