Srinagar: As the crowds carrying tri-colour were are on a rampage against a particular community in Jammu amid a ‘symbolic’ curfew, vehicles of government employees hailing from Kashmir Valley were damaged and stones hurled at their official accommodations in the state’s winter capital.
Reports said a number of vehicles from a particular community have been damaged and attempts made to set on fire their dwellings by the rampaging crowds.
Secretariat Employees Union leader GhulamRasool Mir said that there have been attempts to set ablaze the several residential quarters of employees while stones were hurled towards the residential accommodations of the employees by the agitating mobs at various places. “Our vehicles have been damaged and attempts have been made to torch our houses,” Mir said.
He said that if the government failed to provide fool proof security, the employees from Kashmir will be forced to return to Kashmir in a bid to protect themselves and their families.
“I have brought it into the notice of chief secretary, Director General of Police and Commissioner Secretary Home,” he said, adding, “If the government fails to provide the required security to safeguard the life and property of the employees, we will issue appeal to employees to protect themselves and their families and return to Kashmir.”
Another employees leader, President Darbar Move Employees Federation, OwaisWani said that the curfew imposed by the administration is “symbolic” and has not been imposed strictly to enable due protection to the people from Valley including the employees working in civil secretariat and other departments.
“Wherever vehicle bearing registration numbers allotted to Kashmir region are being seen, they are damaged,” he added and urged the governor to ensure due protection of the employees and their property. (GNS)
