A municipal council worker was caught on camera, kicking his woman colleague, in Sindhanur town of Raichur district in Karnataka, news agency ANI reported. The man, who was seen kicking the woman in the video, was arrested by the police and a case has been registered against him. The report further said the incident occurred on Saturday last week, when the woman, Nasreen, showed up late for work.

Nasreen, who works as SDA in the corporation, was observing her Ramazan fast at the time of the incident, the Times of India quoted police officials as saying. “Nasreen was observing fast during Ramzan and is said to have turned up late to work,” a senior police official was quoted in the report. He further added that the accused Sharanappa who worked as a computer operator on contractual basis, kicked Nasreen after an argument broke out about her being late.

As per the employees quoted by TOI, the staff members were unaware about the incident until a complaint was filed by Nasreen, since the incident occurred on Saturday and majority of staff was not present in the office. “Sharanappa is a contractual employee and the Council had no idea about the incident. We came to know about it only after police informed that Nasreen has complained against Sharanappa,” a SCMC official was quoted by the newspaper. “Following the woman’s complaint, her male colleague has been dismissed and handed over to police,” he further added.

The police officials also told the newspaper that it was not the first time Sharanappa was accused of assaulting a colleague.

          Why media is bringing her religion in between when we bring religion into Islamic terrorism, media says terrorism has no religion. Then how this crime is relTed to roza, ramzaan and religion? This is open hypocracy of world and indina media. I don't give a for her ramzan and reza. They eat like buffaloes at night, which is very unhealthy.

            He should be kicked where it hurts most and then sent to prison.

              Not the first time....why was he hired if his record as a violent person was known? Fasting is per se of course no excuse for being late.We have no statement from Nasreen and there could well be some other legitimate excuse.

                No excuse is good enough to kick someone, even a dog. Are you out of your mind?

                  “We should stop religious beliefs at least at work.” Good. But let us add “all religious beliefs.” It shouldn’t be like the uniform civil code argument: forget the Muslim code and follow the Hindu code abandon meat-eating because we Hindus do not like to eat meat if we do, you also can eat it. “Can Hindus do the same thing?” You must be kidding. Hindu festivals are celebrated in all the offices everyone has to contribute for it. Hindus gods are venerated in govt offices. Aydha Pooja and Saraswati Pooja are kept in schools and offices. Hindus make the culture of the country where they are 80 percent majority. Others follow them. Then they complain that this is bad because minorities bring religion to work place.

                    Mr George. ..majority community culture is what Is considered as a culture of that country which includes Europe and US which is the mother of all Forgrt gulf where you can get killed if you talk of other religion..now in India you minorities crib in everything and anything that is Hindu..as you said 80 Hindu majority we have 80 schools and colleges dominated by christians. Here prayers to stories are taught about jesus, which is intself is not correct and Hindus don't crib..Still you crib..This is discrimination? First we should remove this discrimination brought by the Congress..

                    what sort of illogic you are talking. Coming to work late is different and she should be penalised for that, but kicking a woman can attract many penal codes other than assault. She was a muslim, and fasting is incidental. That should neither increase nor decrease the gravity of the situation. And what is that 'we should stop religeous beliefs at work', how can she leave her 'fast' at home....hilarious.
