The Jammu and Kashmir government today sacked four employees including the son of Syed Salahuddin, the chief of terror group Hizbul Mujahideen, and the wife of terror-funding accused Bitta Karate, officials said.
All four employees were dismissed from service under Article 311 of the Constitution which enables the government to sack its employees without an inquiry.

Syed Abdul Mueed, Manager, Information and Technology at Department of Industries and Commerce, is son of Syed Salahuddin, the Pakistan-based chief of banned terror outfit Hizbul Mujahideen.
The others dismissed are: Dr Muheet Ahmad Bhat, Scientist; and Majid Hussain Qadiri (senior Assistant Professor) in Kashmir University.
