Taking a serious note of Wednesday's incident of violence at Maruti Suzuki's Manesar plant, the Haryana chief secretary PK Chaudhery on Thursday said that a special investigation team had been formed under the assistant commissioner of police, Gurgaon to reinvestigate the matter to bring the guilty to book.

Expressing concern over the incident in which one person had died and 46 injured, he said that district administration had taken prompt action to avert further damage.

He said that district administration and labour department was actively keeping a close vigil of the incident.

An FIR had also been registered under section 302 against some unidentified persons and 55 identified persons and the police had arrested 99 persons in this connection.

Stating it to be a minor scuffle between a worker and supervisor which triggered the violence, he said that this was not a labour issue and the management did not expect that it would lead to such an ugly situation, he added.

On being asked about the corrective steps being taken to prevent occurrence of such incidents, he said that the labour department and the district administrations throughout the state are closely interacting with the industry and the labour to ensure maintenance of cordial management - labour relations.

However, he pointed out that the present incident was not related to labour dispute but because of a disciplinary action which led to violent incident.

Wednesday's violence flared after a disciplinary incident against one employee.
