Already under fire for not filing a chargesheet in the BMW hit-and-run case even 90 days after the incident, the Gurgaon police are yet to submit their report on the violence that took place at Maruti Suzuki’s Manesar plant on July 18.
A senior HR manager was killed and more than 100 executives, including two Japanese nationals, were injured in the violence unleashed by agitated workers.
The Gurgaon police brass, including officials of the specially constituted Special Investigation Team (SIT), held a meeting on Monday to discuss the findings. However, the officials remained tightlipped about the developments.
Sources, however, disclosed that the SIT was very close to apprehending Jiya Lal, the Maruti worker who had slapped a supervisor, which apparently triggered the trouble.
The SIT had arrested all union leaders and about 100 workers so far.
The Maruti Suzuki management is yet to lift the lockout.
The management has made it clear that the auto major would resume production only after the SIT files its report.
RC Bhargava, MSIL chairman, said the safety of managers and executives was more important than resuming production.
