(Representational)The authorities in Jammu and Kashmir's Kishtwar district today ordered withholding of salaries of 115 government employees after they were found absent from their duties during a surprise inspection this week.
"Till the completion of inquiry, the salary of the employees is kept withheld with immediate effect," the official said quoting the order.
The official said the district officers or controlling officers concerned have been designated as inquiry officers to conduct the departmental probe against the erring officials.
The action came after surprise inspections were conducted in various government offices at district, sub-divisions, tehsils and block levels by different inspecting teams on Tuesday, he said.
He said the employees remained absent from their legitimate duties and whereabouts of them are not known due to which the public and students are suffering badly.
