Twelve days after violence at carmaker Maruti's Manesar plant claimed the life of a senior executive, the culprits continue to be at large.

The company is yet to take a decision on resumption of operations, an official said on Monday.

The company will announce it's decision to this effect only when it is assured of employee safety, an official spokesperson said.

The labour violence which rocked the Manesar facility on July 18, led to nearly 100 people being injured and a general manager, Awanish Kumar Dev being killed. The killers are still absconding.

Nearly 100 workers sustained injuries and had to be hospitalised. The attackers also set fire to the office and the main gate.

Thereafter, the company declared a lock-out at its Manesar facility on July 21 citing that safety and health of employees was its paramount concern. Unless those were ensured, it could not undertake operations.
