Dozens of government employees on Tuesday were detained here as police foiled their protest march towards the official residence of Governor N N Vohra in support of their demands including implementation of the seventh pay commission recommendations.

Scores of Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) teachers assembled at the Sher-e-Kashmir Park here in the summer capital of the state and started marching towards Raj Bhavan in Gupkar area of the city, a police official said.

He said the protesting employees were demanding implementation of the seventh pay commission recommendations and de-linking of their salaries from the Union Ministry of Human Resources and Development funding.

A large contingent of police was deployed to stop the march and the protesting teachers were asked to disperse, the official said.
