300 striking Tata Nano workers detained in Ahmedabad
Around 300 striking workers of Tata Nano plant were on Saturday detained by police when they gathered outside the plant to protest the suspension of their co-workers at Sanand GIDC here.
Police detained them soon after they gathered at around 11 AM to protest amid tight police security outside the Nano plant. Police said protesters gathered without written permission to hold a rally.
“We have detained all protesting workers, around 300 of them, after they gathered at gate number 2 of GIDC without written permission from the magistrate for the event,” said Ahmedabad Rural DySP P O Bhatt.
The workers had decided to go ahead with their plan to hold protest rally near Tata Nano plant site at Sanand after talks with the company over re-instatement of 26 suspended workers failed.
