Around fifty migrant workers from Manipur and Nagaland have been arrested by the Kerala Police for allegedly attacking Police personnel on Christmas night in Kochi. According to reports, the incident occurred due to a clash between two gangs among the workers.
The clash took place among the workers of a garment company. The company in a statement said “The workers from Nagaland and Manipur conducted a Christmas carol on Saturday night at the camp. As it was late at night, another section of workers questioned the event, leading to a clash among the workers. The incident is unprecedented at the camp. They might have gone on a rampage under the influence of drugs or liquor.”
