Gurugram: A Haryana court on Saturday awarded life imprisonment to 13 former workers of Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) in connection with the 2012 Maruti factory violence and rioting case.


The court also sentenced four other accused to five-year imprisonment and said that the sentence already served by the remaining 14 accused was sufficient.



On March 10, Additional District and Sessions Judge R.P. Goel held 31 former workers guilty of murder and attempt to murder, among other offences, at MSIL's Manesar plant on July 18, 2012 evening.


Maruti Suzuki Human Resource Department General Manager Ashwin Kumar Dev was burnt alive and over 50 persons were injured in the violence. Several policemen had also received injuries.
