New Delhi:

Amid ongoing unrest in the Valley, the Jammu and Kashmir government on Wednesday sacked at least 12 employees for allegedly indulging in anti-national activities.

According to reports, the sacked employees include an assistant registrar of Kashmir University, besides others from education, revenue, public health, engineering and food supplies.

"Reports on their anti-national activities prepared by the state police were forwarded to the Chief Secretary, who then directed respective heads of departments to issue orders terminating their services," reports quoted a top official.

The state government invoked Article 126 of the state constitution to carry out the action, he added.

Some of the sacked employees have already been booked under the Public Safety Act (PSA), while others have evaded arrest.

The unrest in the Kashmir Valley following the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen militant commander Burhan Wani by Indian security forces, has taken 91 lives so far, with over 12,000 injured, and has gone on for over 100 days.
