Srinagar: Two cops are among six Jammu and Kashmir government employees who have been sacked for having alleged militancy links and working as overground workers.

Reliable sources said that two cops are among six government employees who were dismissed under Article 311 of the Indian Constitution under which no inquiry is held and dismissed employees can only approach a high court for relief.

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”.
