“A man hailing from a village near Rajouri town has been detained by police for his “objectionable social media post on death of CDS and other security personnel in a chopper crash”
IN a significant development of tightening noose against ‘habitual’ offenders on social platforms, Jammu and Kashmir Bank, probably for the first time, has taken action against an employee for allegedly mocking the death of the Chief of Defense Staff (CDS).
According to an order issued by the bank (Copy in possession of The Typewriter), a banking attendant has been placed under suspension.
“Despite repeated circulars issued from time to time against misuse of social media platforms by employees contrary to interests/rules of the bank, in one such incident one of our employees has made derogatory comments/ remarks on social media platform on a tragic accident,” reads the order, adding that the contents are purely defamatory and not consonance with conduct rules governing the services of an employee and tantamount to misconduct.
The order further reads that pending disciplinary proceedings against Aafreen Naqash, Banking attendant code no. 023581, presently posted at central processing center-CASA, has been hereby placed under suspension with immediate effect.
Talking to The Typewriter, a senior Bank official, wishing not to be named, said that the action of the employee subscribes to such a decision by the Bank authorities.
“The action on the part of the employee was insensitive and unwarranted from anyone, especially on the death of someone,” said the official, adding that mocking the death of a senior army officer along with other soldiers is unfortunate.
Official said that such actions are necessary to evade future mocking on the part of employees and shall discourage others from bringing bad name to the institution to satisfy their personal bitterness.
Another such incident was reported from Udhampur, wherein a complaint was filed before the police regarding mocking of the death of CDS by a government lecturer.
“One person, a lecturer recently posted in Srinagar has mocked the death of Chief of Defense Staff, Indian Army,” reads the complaint filed by right wing hindu organizations.
Station House officer (SHO), Udhampur, Chaman Gorkha while talking to The Typewriter said that after receiving the complaint, they have filed zero FIR.
