The Indian head of an Italian auto parts company has been beaten to death in a suburb of Delhi, allegedly by a group of sacked workers.
Lalit Kishore Choudhary, of Graziano Transmissioni India, died at the company factory in Greater Noida.
Police said more than 100 dismissed workers entered the factory vandalised machinery and attacked Mr Choudhary.
The confrontation came after a long industrial dispute. The workers denied killing Mr Choudhary.
Nearly 300 workers at Graziano Transmissioni were dismissed two months ago after they demanded pay rises and allegedly ransacked its offices, the AFP news agency reported.
How does this fit into your utopian vision of globalization, Tom? How much does Graziano Transmissioni know about what happens in India, other than the premise that labor is cheaper there? Some new chickens may be coming home to roost!
