Chennai Super Kings suspends team doctor for his odious social media post on Indian martyrs

Speed News Desk | Updated on: 17 June 2020, 13:28 IST

Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have removed their team doctor Madhu Thottappillil for is distasteful tweet on Galwan clash, CSK announced on Wednesday.

In a tweet that has since been taken out, Dr. Madhu had taken a dig at ‘PM Cares’ subsequent to the India-China border face-off at Galwan valley. The tweet had been subjected to counterblast from many people and the social media platform.


 

20 Indian Army personnel including a colonel were martyred in a clash with Chinese troops in Ladakh’s Galwan Valley on Monday, the biggest military confrontation in over five decades that has significantly escalated the already volatile border standoff in the region.

The IPL franchise said they were unaware of the tweet by Dr Madhu, while stressing it was in bad taste.

Dr. Madhu had been the team doctor for the franchise since the beginning of the T20 league, in 2008.
