After teacher, JK Admin dismisses Naib Tehsildar in ‘interest of security of state’

Srinagar: Days after a teacher from north Kashmir was dismissed from the service, the JK Admin on Monday issued orders for dismissal of Naib Tehsildar (Revenue Officer) from services in the ‘interest of the security of the state’.

The Admin in an order said that Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha, after considering the facts and circumstances of the case, observed that on the basis of the information available, the activities of Nazir Ahmad Wani, Naib Tehsildar, Pulwama- II, are such as to warrant his dismissal from service.

“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 inquiry in the case of Nazir Ahmad Wani, Naib Tehsildar, Pulwama – II,” the order reads.

“Accordingly, the Lieutenant Governor hereby dismisses Nazir Ahmad Wani from service with immediate effect,” it said.

The dismissal comes after the Administration on April 21 set up a Special Task Force to identify and scrutinize the cases of employees involved in any case related to posing a threat to the country’s security or anti-national activities.

Earlier Idrees Jan, a teacher of Government Middle School, Kupwara, was dismissed under the same law.
