Court verdict on Haryana's Maruti Suzuki factory violence today

A Gurgaon court today convicted 31 employees of Maruti-Suzuki India Limited, including 13 of murder, in connection with the violence at the automobile giant's Manesar plant in Haryana in 2012 in which a senior officer had been burnt alive. Around 148 factory workers were arrested and charged with the murder of company's HR manager Awanish Kumar Dev on July 18, 2012.

Workers unions' leaders and others who participated in the meeting included those working in Maruti Suzuki's plants in Gurugram, Manesar as well as other plants in Kherki Daula. "The stand of Maruti is vindicated".

"We will challenge the conviction in a higher court", Monu Kuhar, counsel for all the accused in the case, told AFP. The court let off 117 people in the similar case.

Seven workers were found guilty of culpable homicide. "Only 13 have been convicted for murder and these include former office-bearers". They have been implicated in the case and management witnesses have deposed against them because they stand for the rights of workers.

The convicted workers have not been sentenced but could face life in prison. "But there is less than tenuous evidence to link any of these 13 workers to the fire". A mob tore through the plant in Haryana owned by India's largest auto manufacturer, smashing property and setting parts of the factory on fire. Assembly of more than five people has also been prohibited in the 500 metres radius of MSIL plant and Gurgaon court. He was identified from a tooth implant. Two Japanese executives had suffered "minor" injuries.

The police had initially claimed a Maoist link.
