Activist Kausalya suspended from job

Activist Kausalya, who was given a job as a clerk at the Wellington Cantonment Board on compassionate grounds after her husband Shankar was killed, has been suspended after she allegedly “criticised India and the government” in a recent interview, officials said.

“The suspension order stipulates that Ms. Kausalya cannot work for three months,” an official said and added that she would be given a chance to explain herself. “Seeing that she has disrespected her own country, we think it appropriate that she be removed permanently from her job,” he added.
