BANGLADESH: SG Wicus workers run riot
Thousands of workers from an SG Wicus textile factory have gone on the rampage after the alleged confinement and beating of six women labourers.
The workers injured at least ten including the company's managing director and factory manager as they barricaded the building, which is in the Dhaka Export Processing Zone (DEPZ), it was reported by press.
Officials from the Korean-owned company were accused of punishing the female workers, claiming they had stolen BDT50,000 (US$723.59m) from a salary fund.
DEPZ and the factory's authority have denied the workers' claims.
