On July 18, 2002, an argument broke out between the management and workers, which soon got out of hand, with the workers allegedly setting fire to the floors. Avanish Kumar Dev, a senior manager died in the fire, and several others were injured. About 147 workers were arrested and charged with rioting, murder, unlawful assembly and criminal intimidation under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code.

While most of the workers got bail, 11 of them were still in jail.
