The Jammu and Kashmir government has sacked four of its employees, including the wife of terrorist Bitta Karate who besides facing terror charges, is an accused in the matter of Kashmiri pandits’ killings in the 1990s.
The four have been dismissed from services for terror links.
Terrorist Farooq Ahmed Dar alias Bitta Karate in a shocking video confession had admitted that the first Kashmiri Pandit he murdered was Satish Tickoo, one of the first victims of terrorism in the Kashmir Valley.
In May this year, the family of Satish Tickoo filed an application to place on record Bitta Karate’s video confession. The application was filed through advocate Utsav Bains and supported by activist Vikas Raina.
Bitta Karate is accused of killing many other Kashmiri Pandits during the 1990s.
Meanwhile, more details pertaining to the suspension of J&K government employees are awaited.
