Kejriwal attacker sacked from job

Jitendra Pathak, who attacked team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal with a slipper, has been sacked from his job.



Lucknow: Jitendra Pathak, who attacked team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal with a slipper, has been sacked from his job at a private construction company here, an official said Thursday.
"Taking into account his aggressive and violent nature, we have dismissed Jitendra, who was working as a supervisor with the company," Ravindra Singh, chairman of the city-based Ansh Project Service, told a news agency.

"He (Pathak) was hired by us a few months ago. Though I don`t remember that Jitendra was involved in any kind of indiscipline during his short stint with the company, what he did with Kejriwal is shocking and surprising.

"As the company doesn`t want to have such a controversial employee, we have served him a termination letter," he added.

Pathak threw a slipper at Kejriwal during a programme organised here at the Jhulelal Park Tuesday. Police released Pathak Wednesday after he furnished a bail bond.

A native of Uttar Pradesh`s Jalaun district, Pathak has been residing in Lucknow for several years.
