Suzuki Motor chairman Osamu Suzuki today visited two of company’s plants in India—a two-wheeler manufacturing facility and a car plant in Gurgaon—in his first trip to the country after violence broke out at another company plant in Manesar last month.

He said Manesar violence was a criminal act and called for a strict action against those responsible.

Suzuki, who arrived in India on Wednesday on a week-long visit, is yet to visit the Manesar plant. He entered Gurgaon under police protection.

While company officials were tight-lipped about Suzuki's schedule, employee union leaders of the two-wheeler plant of Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt Ltd at Kherka Daula said he only held meetings with the management and did not meet workers and their representatives.
