A fire broke out in automobile major Maruti's plant at Manesar in Haryana on Wednesday as thousands of protesting workers locked its main gates trapping officials inside, authorities said.

The labour unrest followed the suspension of a worker by the company. Union leaders accused Maruti of taking action against workers "without any reason".

It was not immediately clear how the fire started but a police source reported trouble inside the company premises.
