A Kerala man has been sacked by his company in Dubai after he sent abusive and sexually explicit messages to renowned Indian journalist Rana Ayyub.
Bincy Lal Balachandran, who hails from Haripad near Alappuzha, lost his job with Dubai-based Alpha Paint, had his visa revoked and is now set to be deported back to India.
The incident came to light after Rana, a scribe based in New Delhi, exposed the vulgar and offensive messages Bincy Lal sent her on Facebook Messenger. Some of Rana's followers reported the matter to the Alpha Paint, a sister company of the popular National Paints based in Sharjah.
