University professor, policeman and a teacher sacked for having links with terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir

Srinagar, May 13, (Agency)

The Jammu and Kashmir administration on Friday sacked three government employees, including a Kashmir University professor, a teacher and a policeman, in connection with their alleged links to terror groups. Officials gave this information. All three were dismissed on the recommendation of a committee constituted under Article 311 (12) (c) of the Constitution. Article 311(12)(c) permits the dismissal of any person without investigation in the interest of the security of the State. The sacked include Professor Altaf Hussain Pandit of the Chemistry Department of Kashmir University, Mohammad Maqbool Hajam, a government teacher, and Ghulam Rasool, a policeman of the Jammu and Kashmir Police.

It is alleged that Hussain Pandit has been actively associated with the Jamaat-e-Islam (Jail) organization. He has also gone to Pakistan for terrorism training. Pandit was an active terrorist of the ‘Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front’ for 3 years before being arrested by the security forces in the year 1993. Officials said that Pandit was a frequent active member of the jail and used to recruit terrorists in the organisation. From 2011 to 2014, Pandit was involved in stone-pelting and organizing violent protests over the killing of terrorists, officials said. But in the year 2015, Pandit became an executive member of Kashmir University Teachers’ Association. Officials said that he used the term to promote separatism among the students. Similarly, Hajam, a government school teacher, used to incite people to terrorism. Officials said Hajam was part of a mob that attacked a police station and other government buildings in Sogam. Apart from this, despite being a teacher, he was always involved in terrorist activities. Policeman Rasool was acting as an underground supporter of terrorists. Rasool was also in touch with Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Mushtaq Ahmed alias Aurangzeb, who has now gone to Pakistan.
