Social activist Kausalya, who has been working as a clerk at the Wellington Cantonment Board near Ooty, has been suspended after she "insulted the country" in an interview to the press, Cantonment board officials said.

An official said that Ms. Kausalya had criticised India in an interview, following which she was suspended from duty for a period of three months.

"Her suspension will be reviewed at the next meeting of Cantonment Board officials, and we plan on recommending that she be terminated from service," said the official.
