DySP Davinder dismissed
2 teachers from Kupwara also sacked
Srinagar, May 20: Tainted Jammu and Kashmir Police officer Davinder Singh, who was arrested and subsequently chargesheeted by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) in a terror case, was on Thursday dismissed from service, an official order said.
The order of dismissal of Singh, who was a deputy superintendent of police, was given by Lt Governor Manoj Sinha.
“The Lieutenant Governor is satisfied after considering the facts and circumstances of the case and on the basis of information available that the activities of Davinder Singh, Deputy Superintendent of Police (under suspension) s/o Deedar Singh R/o Overigund Tral, Pulwama are such as to warrant his dismissal from service,” reads an order.
The order further reads; “The Lieutenant Governor is satisfied under sub-clause (c) of the proviso to clause (2) of Article 311 of the Constitution of India that in the interest of the security of the State, it is not expedient to hold an enquiry in the case of Davinder Singh. Accordingly, the Lieutenant Governor hereby dismisses Davinder Singh from service with immediate effect.”
Singh was investigated by the NIA after he was caught ferrying militants of banned Hizbul Mujahideen to Jammu from Kashmir last year.
