A farmers’ outfit in Uttar Pradesh’s Muzaffarnagar area warned a sugar mill to ‘throw out’ Kashmiri workers as soon as possible or face ‘dire consequences.’
The incident came just a day after right wing groups threatened Mansoorpur Sugar Mill management to “throw out Kashmiri workers”, reported The Times of India.
The report said a farmers’ outfit, Bharatiya Kisan Union-Tomar, warned Khatauli-based Triveni Sugar Mill to do the same or “face consequences”.
The report said that there are 74 Kashmiris working in the mill.
“The management has sought three days’ time to deal with the matter,” it reported.
Vishal Ahlawat, a member of the outfit, warned if the mill did not sack the workers, they would “remove them”.
After the threats to Kashmiri mill workers the security around the mill has been tightened, TOI report said.
“It is our responsibility to protect every Indian citizen and we will not allow anyone to take law in their hands,” it quoted Khatauli SDM Indrakant Diwadi as having said.
