A worker of an auto component firm succumbed to serious injuries sustained during a clash between two groups of company employees here, sparking tension in the area and prompting his agitated colleagues to stage protests.
Ajit Kumar Yadav, 26, was critically injured in the clash last evening between some workers of Rico Auto, who were on strike for about a month demanding higher pay, and another group which has stayed away from the agitation.
Yadav died late last night, Deputy Commissioner of Police (West) Rakesh Arya said adding, the post-mortem report said that he died due to severe head injuries.
Enraged workers staged a protest here and demanded that FIR be lodged against top RICO officials, including Managing Director Arvind Kapoor and Senior Vice President (HR) Surender Singh. Arya reached the spot and pacified the workers, assuring that police would soon arrest those responsible for the death.
Arya later told PTI that police were investigating into the matter and will arrest anyone found responsible.
RICO official Surender Singh said the company would pay a compensation of Rs five lakh to Ajit's kin. He denied that the management was responsible for his death.
