The Gurgaon District court has convicted 31 workers of participating in a 2012 factory riot in a Maruti Suzuki factory in Manesar, Haryana.
The court said that it will pronounce the quantum of punishment later today.
Hours after the verdict today, the workers sought to bring the focus back on the tense industrial relations, underscoring the mass acquittal. "We workers will teach them the power of labour unity and even the courts will have to accept our demands", he said.
It was only on 23 February, 2015, that the Supreme Court granted bail to two of the 148 accused. He went on to add that around 25,000 workers from various factories in the area organised a lunch boycott on Thursday in solidarity with the jailed Maruti Suzuki Union workers and will do so again on 16 March.
The workers of the factory had resorted to rioting and 94 managers and supervisors and nine policemen were injured in the attack.
The violence was triggered on the carmaker's premises after a supervisor allegedly abused and slapped a worker.
