Daily Outrage: Workers in India beat their CEO to death

WHO: Sixty-three former employees of Graziano Transmissioni India charged with murdering managing director L.K. Choudhary

WHAT: At an Italian-owned auto parts factory outside New Delhi, a meeting called to settle a long-running labor dispute went badly awry and the workers are charged with attacking Choudhary with iron rods and wooden sticks. Seven other victims are still in intensive care and the factory was trashed.

WHY IT HAPPENED: National government officials, local police, company officials and labor spokesmen are all trying to cover their positions by telling wildly contradictory stories to India’s press. One certainty is that the plant has undergone a bitter strike since May.

WHY IT WAS A BAD IDEA: Aside from the 63 defendants facing murder sentences, some 600 employees lost their jobs because the badly damaged factory has been closed indefinitely.
