Jammu: The Jammu and Kashmir government Sunday terminated the services of the Registrar of the Government Medical College (GMC) Jammu for, what it called as, his anti-govt post on the social networking site Facebook.

Amit Kumar was sacked after he violated rules that are meant to prevent any government servant from using social media to write anti-government posts. Kumar had been appointed for three year-contract to serve at the GMC Jammu as Registrar (Anesthesia).

The order issued said Kumar used his “Facebook account and commented with intent to ‘provoke’ readers,” the order copy said.
