The Kotak Mahindra Bank has terminated the services of Vishnu Nandakumar, Assistant Manager for making derogatory remarks in his Facebook page regarding the Kathua Rape-Murder issue where an innocent eight year old was brutally raped and killed by eight men.
Vishnu Nandakumar had posted in FB that it was good that she was murdered as tomorrow she can become a danger (bomb) to the nation which can cause religious animosity and can harm the communal harmony prevailing in the country.
The FB post of Vishnu Nandakumar had created widespread protests in social media and in public domain with protestors agitating before the Palarivattom Branch of the bank in Kochi for termination of Vishnu’s services. People also protested by reducing the 5 star ratings of Kotak Mahindra Bank on FB.
Following the widespread protests, Kotak Mahindra Bank announced the termination of Vishnu’s services for poor performance in its FB post. He had previously worked as sales officer of HDFC Bank and is known to be a member of RSS.
