A Malayali working in Dubai was sacked from his job on Wednesday after he went live on Facebook on Tuesday threatening to kill Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan.

Krishnakumaran Nair, in his live video which went viral on Tuesday, said that he is planning to return from the Gulf to kill Pinarayi. Announcing that he was an RSS sympathiser and a former member, he also passed casteist and derogatory remarks on the Chief Minister and his family.

"I have come here to amass wealth to plot the murder. I get Rs 2 lakh per month as salary for my job as senior rigging instructor. I will buy daggers. Once we decide to kill, we will do that," he had said. 

Krishnakumaran who worked with the Abu Dhabi based Target Engineering Construction Company also said that he planned to come back to Kerala to execute the murder.

He claimed that he arrived at the conclusion to kill Pinarayi as the Kerala police had failed to act on a complaint given by woman BJP leader Lasitha Palakkad that a CPI(M) man Abdusamad had made sexually inappropriate comments about her. 

A few hours later, Krishnakumaran came up with another video in which he apologised to Pinarayi and his family members, saying that he was under the influence of alcohol when he made the previous video. He went on to say that he was approached by two “comrades” who made him realise the mistake that he had committed.

However, he came up with another Facebook post on Wednesday announcing that he had lost his job after the death threat he made against the Chief Minister. “God has punished me for the mistake I’ve done,” he said in the post. He went on to say that it was only when he went to the office that he came to know that he was dismissed.

In his post, Krishnakumaran also mentioned that he didn’t tell the two comrades who approached him that he was a former RSS man because he was afraid of them.

“I’m willing to accept any punishment that the law gives for the crime that I have done,” said Krishnakumaran. He further said in the Facebook post that although he tried to reach out to many BJP workers, no one came to his aid.

He went on to say that he had been an RSS sympathizer ever since he was young and that he would continue to be an RSS sympathizer till his death.
