The prolonged labour unrest going at Maruti Suzuki turned violent today as the workers of Manesar plant allegedly attacked the group of supervisors who were on their way to work, with five of them sustaining injuries, as reported by PTI.

"A medical examination of two injured employees is being carried out now and an FIR will be filed after that," a police official said PTI.

Another three supervisors that sustained injuries in the attack were admitted to Artemis Hospital in Gurgaon and later discharged after first aid, the police said.

The incident happened today morning when a group of 11 supervisors were stopped on their way to work by a group of people at Manesar plant and were allegedly attacked.

Haryana Minister for Labour and Employment Shiv Charan Lal Sharma will meet workers and management to resolve the issues and he is confident that the 18-day stand-off between the plant workers and management will be resolved by tomorrow.

The minister said he will hold talks with the workers and management at Maruti Suzuki's plant in Manesar again today to put an end to the labour unrest.

"I am leaving for Gurgaon (Manesar) today to meet workers and management (Maruti Suzuki) to resolve this issue and I am hoping that the standoff between both parties will come to an end either today or tomorrow," Sharma told PTI.

The dispute between the workers and the management started at the Maruti's Manesar plant started when the company besides firing and suspending employees asked everyone to sign a 'good conduct bond.'

Maruti Suzuki has not allowed workers to enter the factory as they have not signed the good conduct bond. Instead the company started hiring workers on contract to resume production.
