Jammu: State Election Commissioner, K K Sharma has expressed profound grief over the sad demise of senior KAS officer Mr. Shamim Ahmad Wani, who passed away yesterday morning at Government Medical College & Hospital, Jammu due to COVID complications.
While recalling his association with the late officer, the SEC described Mr Shamim as a dedicated, soft spoken and intelligent officer. The SEC noted that Dr Shamim A Wani served with great commitment and professionalism in the committee constituted by the Government last year for coming up with a road map for providing relief to the industries and commerce sector of the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, which had taken a hit due to the Global COVID-19 pandemic. Dr. Shamim Wani felt greatly concerned for the poor and marginalized as also for others who were genuinely impacted by the adversity, SEC recalled.
