Violent Clash at Maruti-Suzuki Plant Leaves 1 Dead and 85 Injured [Video]
The riot came after the workers accused management of anti-worker and anti-union plans, which reportedly cost Maruti around $500- (€407-) million, last year. The workers main targets were the figures in the company’s higher management, with a reported 7 of them ending up in hospital. They even lit the factory on fire, however, it was extinguished in time, by the local fire brigade.
Now, the 90 workers which were arrested will be facing charges of murder, attempted murder and arson. Another downside to the whole affair is the fact that the factory has been shut down, meaning it is losing money fast. This is also reflected in its shares which fell by 8.2% immediately after the incident.
