CITU protest

Members of Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU) staged a demonstration here on Monday evening demanding immediate arrest of the owner and the manager of the garment company where Dhavamani (75), who committed suicide on Sunday worked.

Dhavamani ended his life by immolating himself in front of the company after he was allegedly beaten up by the owner and the manager when he reportedly expressed displeasure over the Deepavali bonus disbursed to him.

C. Moorthy, district assistant secretary of CITU, said though the owner and the manager were named as accused in the First Information Report, they were yet to be arrested for abetting the suicide.
