A bank employee was terminated from his job after his social-media post on the rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl at Kathua in Jammu invited massive online protest.
Vishnu Nandakumar, working as assistant manager at Kotak Mahindra Bank’s Palarivattom branch, posted an insensitive and communal post on his Facebook on the rape and murder of the child, justifying the horrific act. This instantly invited angry remarks from hundreds of users who also started the campaign with hashtag
#dismiss your Assistant Manager Vishnu Nandakumar#.
They also reportedly bombarded the bank’s branches with calls, seeking his removal from service. The bank immediately responded and terminated Vishnu from the services and also expressed condemn for his act.
