The Jammu and Kashmir (Home Department) has issued the required notifications to give effect to the notifications of the Central Government and authorised district magistrates and police officers to take the necessary action in this regard. The order says consequent to the above, association or participation, direct or indirect, of any government employee with the said unlawful associations ie JeI or JKLF (Mohd Yasin Malik faction), shall attract the provisions of the Jammu and Kashmir Government Employees (Conduct) Rules, 1971. And in this regard, all government employees should desist from associating, directly or indirectly, with the above unlawful associations in any manner whatsoever and those associated, if any, directly or indirectly, are advised to dissociate themselves forthwith, failing which there will be administrative consequences.
