Waiting for justice [India]

For the Maruti Suzuki workers who have been languishing in jail for over a year now and their families, it is going to be another black Deepavali…All the 147 workers incarcerated in Bhondsi Jail have been charged with murder, attempted murder, criminal conspiracy, destruction of property and several other offences in the Indian Penal Code (IPC)…There were conditions like restricting the number of times a worker could go to the restroom, fixed timings for lunch irrespective of the fact that there would be a long queue in the canteen, conditional incentives and, most importantly, insulting behaviour by supervisors, and so on. In fact, the trigger for the events on July 18 that led to the death of a manager was the insulting behaviour of a supervisor towards a worker.
