GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Oct 10: The police on Sunday detained three government employees allegedly for going on strike against the Government Medical College administration.
The Medical Employees Federation members told Greater Kashmir that three of their colleagues including President, Gulzar Ahmed were detained at Police Station Shergarhi.
Pertinently, on Saturday the federation members working at SMHS Hospital had gone on strike over some administrative issue.
“But today the SHO Karan Nagar called them to the Police Station where from they were asked to go to Police Station Shergarhi,” the federation members said.
The moment, Gulzar and his colleagues Shabir Ahmed and Mukhtar Ahmed reached the Shergarhi PS, they were put behind the bars.
“This is injustice how come has police interfered in some administrative matter,” the federation members questioned.
The GMC Principal Dr Shahida Mir said she was unaware about the police issue.
“Unfortunately they had gone on strike without informing me… But I don’t know anything about the police role as to how come they have detained the employees,” Dr Mir told Greater Kashmir.
SHO Karan Nagar feigned ignorance about the issue.
But Shergarhi police said the trio was detained on his instructions.
“They are in safe custody…He (SHO Karan Nagar) knows about the issue,” the Thana Munshi said.
Meanwhile, the employees were under detention when the report was being filed.
