Kerala govt official faces suspension for conducting prayer in office
Thiruvananthapuram: A child development officer in Kerala’s Thrissur was suspended on Monday after a probe found him guilty of conducting a prayer at the workplace to remove “negative energy”.
K.A.Bindhu had held a prayer at one of the Child Development Offices in Thrissur leading to her suspension.
A probe into the incident was ordered by District Collector Krishna Teja.
Trouble began when a contract employee of the office wore a ceremonial Christian robe to office in October and conducted a prayer allegedly on the direction of the head who believed that some negative energy had gripped the office building and wanted to get rid of it by a prayer session.
