Govt gives job to acid victim
Girl Appointed Lab Assistant In Education Department
Srinagar, Feb 6: Amid demand for rehabilitation of recent acid attack victim of the Valley, Jammu and Kashmir Government has issued formal orders for her appointment in the school Education Department on compassionate grounds.
Informed sources told Greater Kashmir that on the instructions of Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, the General Administration Department (GAD) had made a detailed proposal for appointment of the victim, who was attacked with acid in Parraypora area of Srinagar last month. The proposal for her appointment as Laboratory Assistant was moved in accordance with her qualification and ability, sources said.
“The CM gave concurrence to the proposal on Monday and accordingly GAD issued orders for her appointment,” they said. According to them, the recruitment has been made in relaxation of the rules and the School Education Department is likely to issue formal orders for her posting within next few days.
When contacted, Principal Secretary to Chief Minister, BB Vyas confirmed that the CM has given nod to the proposal. The victim was attacked with acid by a stalker in Srinagar on January 2 this year, prompting widespread outrage in the Valley with all including separatists condemning the act unequivocally. Later the police arrested the main accused, Reyaz Ahmad Nath son of Ghulam Rasool Nath of Chanapora and his accomplice Junaid Ahmad alias Mudasir. Junaid, however, later turned approver.
Pertinently, PDP national spokesman Dr Sameer Kaul was first to step in for the help of the victim. Kaul offered to bear the victim’s treatment expenses at the Apollo Hospital. Later, the State Government also made the same offer.
While the victim is undergoing treatment at Apollo hospital, Jammu and Kashmir Police is all set to produce chargesheet against the main accused within next two days.
Sources in police told this newspaper that they have completed all formalities vis-à-vis submitting chargesheet in the competent court on Thursday or Friday.
