Sacked workers kill boss

Sacked employees beat to death the India head of an Italian industrial gear manufacturing company.

Lalit Kishore Choudhary, the 47-year-old chief executive officer of Graziano Transmissioni India, died on Monday after sacked employees beat him up in the company's office in Greater Noida in Uttar Pradesh state, according to reports from Reuters.

The confrontation followed a long industrial dispute at the factory, which led to the dismissal of hundreds of employees.

"The dismissed employees turned violent during a meeting with the management," R.K Chaturvedi, a senior police officer is quoted as saying, adding that 63 people had been arrested.
