The office-bearers of the Workers' Trade Union on Monday said they have sent a postal complaint to the senior district police officials, asking for a thorough inquiry into Saturday's lynching incident at Allied Nippon Limited (ANL) in Ghaziabad.

Speaking to Hindustan Times, trade union's district secretary JP Shukla said police officials should thoroughly probe into the incident.

"We have sent the complaint through post as most of the workers are under the threat of being arrested after the incident," he said.

Meanwhile, the meeting scheduled on Monday between the workers and the ANL could not take place after Saturday's incident.

Additional district labour commissioner (ADLC) MK Joshi told Hindustan Times that trade union forwarded them a letter on Monday morning, stating withdrawal of token strike call by the ANL workers on November 16-18.

In view of the strike call, ANL management had earlier requested police officials to provide extra police force from November 15-20.

The officials said the lynching incident was never expected.

"We had already appraised both the parties of implementing sections of Industrial Disputes Act, 1947, that no strike or lockout of the unit would take place until the meeting on November 15. But still couldn’t avert the unfortunate incident from taking place," Joshi said.
