Officials of Allied Nippon Limited, on Monday, approached a higher court and submitted a criminal revision into a lower court's order that directed the police to lodge an FIR against seven management personnel of the company.
The workers of the company had obtained a court order on Saturday that directed the police to lodge an FIR and investigate into the workers' allegation against seven top officials of the company.
"In our revision, we have maintained that Saturday's order be quashed as workers wanted to pressurise the management through their FIR. They are targeting those officials who were actually beaten up severely during the incident," company vice-president (HR) MS Chaudhary said.
Chaudhary was talking about November 13 rioting incident, where workers assaulted company's senior management personnel, including assistant manager Yogender Chaudhary who later succumbed to his injuries.
Allied Nippon's officials had approached the police and named 27 workers and 350 others unidentified persons for murder and rioting.
The police arrested 13 workers in connection with the lynching. But, the workers approached senior police officials with their complaint and claimed that several company officials fired shots at them on that day and injured five workers.
Vice-president Chaudhary, however, denied the allegations.
Getting no reprieve from the police, one of the workers, Kanchid Singh, approached a Ghaziabad court and submitted his complaint.
