The man who was at the centre of the violence at Maruti Suzuki India's Manesar plant, in which a senior official was killed and more than 100 injured, has landed in police net.
Gia Lal, who allegedly punched a supervisor at the plant and hence had been suspended, was arrested from Dharuhera, police said.
His suspension had sparked the workers' protest, which snowballed into largescale violence as a labourers' mob attacked company officials.
Assistant Commissioner of Police Ravinder Tomar told Newsline, "The man who punched the supervisor has been arrested. He has been identified as Gia Lal. He was arrested from Dharuhera. We are investigating the matter further."
On July 18, an angry mob of workers had assaulted senior officials of the company, torched the security control room at the entrance and damaged more than 40 vehicles parked inside the company premises.
The incident was reportedly triggered when Gia Lal got into an argument with a supervisor and then into an altercation with three officials of the Human Resource department. The HR department had suspended him after that argument.
This was the fourth incident of labour unrest at the Manesar plant within a couple of years.
