Maruti unrest: Mahapanchayat demands CBI probe

New Delhi: The mahapanchayat of 200 villages that met on Monday to discuss the violence at Maruti's Manesar plant demanded a CBI probe into the incident.

Fearing job losses, the mahapanchayat came out strongly in support of the Maruti management and against the workers who are accused of wreaking havoc at the plant.

The mahapanchayat also suggested recruitment of more locals to avoid similar incidents in future.

Meanwhile, the auto industry has said it will be taking up the matter with the Prime Minister's Office and the Haryana government.

Meanwhile, Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda has said he will meet the Panchayat leaders and Maruti officials on Monday.
