Maruti has no plans to shift from Manesar but will, in no way, work out a compromise with the workers, sources said on Tuesday. In fact, it is likely that the auto giant may sack some of them, they said.

It has been a week since a general manager of the company was charred to death and 40 others injured when workers at Maruti's Manesar plant clashed with the management's guards.

At least a 100 workers were arrested. However, the name of the worker who killed the manager is yet to be revealed. Meanwhile, six workers, including their union's secretary, were sent to police custody.

While Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda has met the company's management and set up a Special Investigation Team to probe the incident, the company has said it is looking to sack at least 600 of 1400 workers.

Eminent lawyer KTS Tulsi has also been appointed as the prosecutor in the case against the workers.

While Maruti Chairman RC Bhargava has maintained that the company has no plans to move from Manesar, it plans to open a R&D centre in Rohtak soon.

Meanwhile, in further blow to the Maruti workers, a mahapanchayat of around 200 villages near Manesar declared support to Maruti's management. They demanded a CBI probe into the incident and said that the problems were created by migrant workers and not the locals. They also urged Maruti to work out a peaceful resolution to the issue.
