At a time when India is horrified with rape and murders, a private bank in Kerala was forced to sack its employee after he made derogatory comments about the 8-year-old girl raped and killed in Jammu's Kathua. 

Kotak Mahindra Bank has sacked its Kochi branch Assistant Manager Vishnu Nandakumar, for hate comments on social media. 

Vishnu, referring to the 8-year-old girl had said on Facebook that it was "good that she was killed at this age itself. Else, she would have grown up and returned throwing bombs in India". It's not clear when the comment was posted, however, the post was widely shared and the bank's Facebook page was flooded with demands for the manger to be sacked.

Twitter was also flooded with demands for dismissing the manager with hashtag #Dismiss_your_manager trending.
   
On Friday evening, Kotak Mahindra Bank in a statement said that it has terminated the services of Vishnu. "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."



Vishnu has deleted his Facebook account since the controversy.

He comes from a family of local RSS and BJP leaders in Kerala. His uncle, a BJP leader, had already condemned the Kathua rape and murder case on Facebook before Vishnu's hate remarks.
