Dubai-Based Indian Threatening on Social Media to Kill Kerala Chief Minister Loses Job, Apologizes
Krishnakumar SN Nair later posted another video where he apologized, saying he had posted the message in an inebriated condition.
A Dubai-based man hailing from Kerala was sacked by his employer following a hate video that he had posted on the social media, where he threatened to kill Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan.
Krishnakumar SN Nair, who called himself a Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) supporter, posted the video on June 5 on the social media. He apologized on June 6, saying that he had posted the message in an inebriated condition, the Hindustan Times reported.
However, Nair, a former senior rigging supervisor at the Abu Dhabi-based Target Engineering, had already been fired by his employer by then. Nair was fired for posting the provoking Facebook post at the company accommodation, Khaleej Times reported.
“I have lost my job. I am ready to face any action but I will remain a supporter of RSS. I seek apology from Pinarayi Vijayan and others for my outbursts,” Nair said in his second post, as per HT.
According to the Ernakulam central police, Nair has been booked under some sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). The complainant is a sub-inspector at the police station, Mumbai Mirror reported.
The video, which Nair deleted on June 6, was being shared and posted by many by the time he could delete it. In the video, he is heard abusing and threatening, and saying that he will quit his job and come to Kerala to enforce justice, threatening that he will kill the chief minister. “I am least bothered how my life is going to end. If we decide to kill a person then we need to finish the job,” he was heard as saying, HT reported.
Nair was also heard mouthing profanities against Vijayan, his family and a state minister MM Mani in the video. “It’s time to grind the old knives,” he said, Mumbai Mirror reported. Soon after the video went viral, two NRIs met Nair and made him realize what he had done, following which he posted another video on Facebook, according to reports.
He later posted another video, in which he said that he had been punished for what he had done. “I will cancel the visa and will soon return home. I am ready to receive any punishment for the law,” he said in the video, as per Google’s translation.
