However, some misguided elements in the union body took law into their hands and assaulted supervisors in the shop floor of our Gurgaon plant in full view of everyone on Friday. In view of this gross act of indiscipline inside the plant, the management remains determined to deal with the incident swiftly, fairly and firmly.
