The clash took place around midnight on Saturday at a workers’ camp in East Kambalam Kitex. The police jeep was set on fire and two police vehicles were smashed.
‘It was a coincidence last night. Workers from the states of Nagaland and Manipur performed carols as part of Christmas. A few of them opposed it. Then there was the conflict. Security personnel and later supervisors intervened to control it. They were also attacked. Then we called the police. When the police arrived, they were also attacked. It is understood that the workers used intoxicants. It has become a way that no one can control, ‘said Kitex MD.
They do not seem to have criminal backgrounds. Those who come from Nagaland and Manipur region work very hard. That is their years of experience. This is the first time such an incident has taken place. Someone got drunk there. Many people have used it knowingly or unknowingly. These are acts of violence committed outside of intoxication. It was not an event planned in advance. Sabu Jacob said that was evident in their investigation.
P.V. The company has been on the verge of closure since Sreenijan won the MLA contest. Sabu Jacob added that he is not replying now.
Kunnathunadu MLA PV Sreenijan had alleged that the Kitex management was also responsible for the clash. He also said that there were constant complaints against the workers.
