Srinagar, Mar 15: The Jammu and Kashmir Government on Friday dismissed a teacher from his services over involvement in anti-national activities.

An official told the activities of the employee namely Manzoor Ahmed Laway of DH Pora Kulgam had come to the adverse notice of law enforcement and intelligence agencies, as they found him involved in activities prejudicial to the interests of the State. 

He said that he is involved in two FIRs registered at Police Station DH Pora, Kulgam and was one of the instigator who along with his associates instigated a mob on 09.07.2016 to cause damage and destruction to Government property and in the process, the mob marched towards Police Station DH Pora and looted Arms, Ammunition and other Government Property from the Police Station and later set the it on fire. 

“In another incident on 10.09.2016, the subject along with his associates led an unruly mob which resorted to stone pelting on joint party of Police and security forces in which armed gunmen from amongst the mob fired indiscriminately upon the police party,” he said. 

He added that Manzoor Ahmed Laway as teacher had the responsibility to guide the students not to indulge in activities directed against the security of the state and when the subject is himself instrumental in fomenting secessionism among the student fraternity, then his role as a teacher does not serve the purpose for which he has been appointed to Government service.(KNO)
