The Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has asked activist Rehana Fathima, booked for posting a video on social media of her minor children painting on her half-naked body, to vacate the quarters she is residing in.
The BSNL, in a notice issued on June 27, said that the raid on the quarters allotted to her in connection with a POCSO case has tarnished the image of the company. "On June 25, the police raided the quarters in which you are residing in the light of POCSO case registered against you. The above event tarnished the image of BSNL.
Hence you are instructed to vacate the quarter within 30 days from the date of receipt of this notice, failing which further proceedings will be initiated for eviction," BSNL said in the notice.
It said that Fathima was given compulsory retirement with effect from May 11 as a part of disciplinary proceedings against her and therefore she is no longer a BSNL employee and is ineligible to occupy the quarters. -- ANI
