GoAir revokes termination of employee after he claims it was not him but an impersonator who made the offensive comments on Hindu gods

Khan, the GoAir employee, took to Facebook to say that he has been getting threats and abuses because of mistaken identity and he has already lodged a police complaint regarding the same.

GoAir has revoked termination of Trainee First Officer Asif Khan and put him on suspension pending inquiry after he claimed that it was not him but an impersonator who had made the offensive comments on Hindu gods and goddesses on social media. Khan, the GoAir employee, took to Facebook to say that he has been getting threats and abuses because of mistaken identity and he has already lodged a police complaint regarding the same.
