"Disciplinary action has been ordered against 70 officers and officials found absent from duty in Budgam district on May 21," an official spokesman said.
    
The spokesman said surprise inspection of various district offices was carried out by Additional District Development Commissioner Budgam and 70 employees were found absent from duties.

The attendance in most government offices on Wednesday was thin as public transport was off the roads in Kashmir due to a strike call given by moderate Hurriyat Conference to commemorate the death anniversaries of its two slain leaders.
