Kotak Mahindra Bank, the country's fourth largest private lender, has sacked one of its employees after he posted a hate-spewing post on social media relating to the rape and murder of eight-year-old girl from Kathua in Jammu.

As India mourns for the child, protesting against the defenders of rapists and urging law to seek justice for the girl and her family, Vishnu Nandakumar from Kerala, now former Kotak Mahindra Bank employee, through a Facebook post justified the horrific act towards the rape victim.

Vishnu had written, "Good that she was killed at this age itself. Otherwise she would have grown up and come back as a suicide bomber against India."

After several comments condemning his post which went viral, Kotak Bank issued a statement saying, 「We have terminated Vishnu Nandakumar from the services of the bank on Wednesday, April 11, 2018 for poor performance. It is extremely disheartening to see such comments being made in the aftermath of such tragedy by anyone, including an ex-employee. We strongly condemn this statement.」

Soon after the post by Nandakumar, who was an assistant manager of the Palarivattom branch of Kotak Mahindra Bank, thousands of people wrote to the bank seeking his termination. 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.

Some also threatened to close their accounts with the bank if he was not dismissed immediately.

In fact, a post about debit cards put up by Kotak Mahindra on April 12, which at the time of writing this copy was the last post on their page, has more than 34,000 comments with the majority of them saying 'dismiss him' under the hashtags such as #dismiss_your_manager and #justice_for_ASIFA.
