Engineer arrested for 'spread the virus' post, Infosys sacks him

Mar 28, 2020 10:38 IST

A software engineer from Infosys has been arrested for a social media post, calling people to sneeze in the open and spread coronavirus. The person identified as Mujeeb Mohammad posted on Facebook, "Let's join hands, go out and sneeze with open mouth in public. Spread the virus." Following the Friday night arrest, Infosys sacked him. The tech giant, which had initially believed that it could be a case of mistaken identity, confirmed later that the post was by their employee and stated that he has been terminated from service.
