"I have been getting death threats, abusive hate messages, my mother and sister threatened with rape, all because of a mistaken identity and because a guy with same name as mine had abused Holy Hindu God's," he said.
In another Facebook post on Sunday, he said that he has filed an FIR against the person who has used his name and made derogatory comments on the social media platforms.
Before the decision of sacking the trainee first officer, the airline had tweeted that it was trying to verify whether the person 'Asif Khan' is associated with the airline.
Screenshots of the objectionable tweets from the Twitter id "@MdAsif35534489" of the account named "Asif Khan" went viral, seeking action from the airline. The profile of the handle mentioned -- cabin crew at @goairlinesindia.
