Srinagar, Feb 18: Amid fresh attacks on Kashmiris, JK Civil Secretariat Employees Coordination Committee Chairman on Monday asked employees to take care of their families first and not to attend offices today.
“Employees are requested to take care of their families first at their respective residences rather than attend offices,” JK Civil Secretariat Employees Coordination Committee Chairman (JKCSECC) Ghulam Rasool Mir in a statement issued to GNS said.
Last night, Kashmiris quarters at Subash Nagar Toph Sheer Khan were attacked by the frenzied mobs amid” so-called curfew” and despite the assurances by the administration to ensure their security.
Mir condemned the continuous attacks on quarters and damaging properties and vehicles belonging to Kashmiris.
“The unabated attacks are highly condemnable, very unfortunate and total failure on part of the government,” he had said, adding that there are brazen attempts to damage the communal harmony and brotherhood and the administration must swing into action as early as possible to ensure that such attacks are stopped instantly and that life and property of the Kashmiris and other innocents are protected,” he said.
Since Friday, there was widespread violence in which nearly 50 vehicles belonging to a particular community were reduced to ashes while more than 60 vehicles were damaged during a strike called by the Jammu Chamber of Commerce and Industries and Bar Association in the state’s winter capital against Thursday’s attack on CRPF in Lethpora Pulwama in south Kashmir.
The curfew was imposed by district magistrate from Friday afternoon.
