Syed Ali Shah Geelani’s grandson sacked from service

The grandson of pro-Pakistan separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani was terminated from government service on Saturday for allegedly aiding terrorist activities in Jammu and Kashmir, officials said.

Anees-ul-Islam, son of Altaf Ahmed Shah alias Altaf Fantoosh, was sacked using special provisions under Article 311, they said.

In 2016, he was appointed as a research officer in the Sher-e-Kashmir International Convention Centre.
