New Delhi, July 21 (IANS) Maruti Suzuki Saturday said production at its Manesar plant will not resume till the causes of Wednesday’s violence are fully investigated.

“There is indefinite lockout at the Manesar plant,” Chairman R.C. Bhargava announced at a press conference.

“We are not in a position to start production at the factory. Safety of colleagues is more important than making some cars, making some money.”

He said the management had settled all issues with the workers unions after the last strike nine months ago.

In Wednesday’s clash between workers and management staff, a senior executive was killed and scores were injured.

Bhargava denied any plans of moving out of Manesar.

“This thought of us moving out of here is complete fiction,” he said.
