Info Dept staff protest ‘intimidation’

Srinagar, October 11

Employees of the Information Department have proceeded on an indefinite strike demanding immediate revocation of the attachment order of the Joint Director, Information, Kashmir, Zahoor Ahmad Mir, who is presently attached with the General Administrative Department.

“All offices of the Information Department, both in Kashmir and Jammu, will remain shut till the attachment order of the Joint Director of Kashmir is revoked,” a spokesman of the Employees’ Union said after a meeting today. He said the employees of the advertisement wings at the offices of the Joint Director were subjected to intimidation and harassment by some small-time editors demanding a lion’s share of advertisements and other monetary benefits for their publications. — TNS
