Jammu & Kashmir RTI Movement has demanded that FIR filed against Dr Abdul Bari a college teacher from Kulgam be revoked.
Chairman of RTI Movement Dr Raja Muzaffar Bhat in a statement said, “Dr Bari has been on the forefront against corruption and if people like him are targeted by Government people will have no faith in the rule of law.”
“ Police have booked Dr Bari Naik an Assistant Professor in Govt Degree College (GDC) Kulgam, accusing him of instigating violence in the college while as the reality is that Dr Bari has been using RTI Act to expose corrupt practices in the district. Recently he filed an RTI in DC office regarding selection process adopted for appointment as Rehber e Khel (ReK) . This has infuriated some senior officers of the district administration. We appeal Governor to intervene, get FIR revoked and probe into the whole issue of ReK appointments,” Bhat said.
He said that it is an irony that despite Principal GDC Kulgam giving clean chit to Dr Bari Naik, authorities have booked him like a 3rd grade criminal. Dr Brai is an efficient and upright teacher who is an asset for our society.
