Muthoot Finance MD attacked by trade unionists
On Tuesday morning the Managing Director of Muthoot Finance company was injured after trespassers allegedly attacked his vehicle with stones.
Police said George Alexander Muthoot, who suffered head injury has been admitted to a private hospital. A section of employees have been agitating against the Muthoot management over dismissal of 160 staff from the company’s 43 branches across the state in December.
The protest is being held under the support of the Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU). The Muthoot management alleged that “CITU goons” were behind the attack that occurred at around 9 am in front of IG office here.
However, the CITU rejected the allegations, saying the trade Union outfit has no role in the incident. CITU leader Ananthalavattom Anandan told media that “We don’t believe in such type of violent mode of agitation”. An official of the Confederation of Indian Industries Kerala chapter condemned the incident, saying “it is a matter of great concern”.
