Kotak Mahindra Bank sacks employee for justifying Kathua rape and murder

Kochi: At the time when the entire country has united once again to protest against the rape and murder of 8-year-old girl in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua, a senior employee of a private bank in Kerala made derogatory remarks about the victim, forcing his employers to sack him. Nandakumar had allegedly written, "Good that she was killed at this age itself". The former staff identified as Vishnu Nandakumar, an assistant manager with the Kotak Mahindra Bank, had posted a comment on Facebook in Malayalam stating, "Better the likes of her were done away with now".

Kotak Mahindra's decision earned the bank instant plaudits with many applauding it for keeping its "conscience" alive. As anger was brewing, Kotak Mahindra Bank announced that Vishnu Nandakumar had been sacked.

The bank which said that he was sacked for poor performance also condemned his post. People also began downgrading the bank's page on Facebook, giving them one star rating, thereby bringing their overall ratings down on the social media platform. "We strongly condemn this statement", bank spokesperson Rohit Rao said.

Late on Friday, Kotak Mahindra Bank in a statement said that it has terminated the services of Vishnu.

It caused a huge outcry with many writing to the bank against Nandakumar.

The body of the girl was recovered from woods on January 17, a week after she had gone missing while grazing horses in a village in Kathua district. Investigations revealed she was held captive inside a temple and was sedated before being repeatedly raped and murdered.
