A youth from North Kashmir Wednesday alleged that after serving Border Security Force for more than 13 years, he was discharged from the service on the ground that he remained absent for few days from the duty.
Azad Ahmed Mir, a resident of Gundpora Bandipora told CNS that he was appointed in BSF as Constable (97199175) in 1997 and was posted in Nagaland. “I was associated with 120 Battalion ‘F’ Company when i applied for a 34 day’s leave after serving the Force for more than 13 years,” he said.
Mir added that due to some family problems he could not report on duty in time and ironically without inquiring the matter, the then Commandant H.S.Panth terminated him from the service. “It is surprising that a Head Constable with 13 years of service was terminated without any inquiry. The department violated all the norms in my case just because I was a Kashmiri,” Mir said.
“I was asked to file a petition against BSF order in Nagaland court and being a resident of Kashmir it is very difficult for me to move there on weekly or monthly basis,” he said and appealed Director General BSF to look into the matter.
“I am sure if Director General will intervene into the matter, he will reinstate me and do justice to me and my family,” Azad Ahmed Mir said.
