The quantum of punishment to those convicted will be pronounced on March 18, defence counsel Rajendra Pathak said.

The violence had left Maruti Suzuki Human Resource Department General Manager Ashwin Kumar Dev dead and over 50 persons injured.

The plant is now functioning with new staff.

The Maruti Suzuki Workers Union said a supervisor had abused and made discriminatory comments to a low-caste worker, leading to the violence.

"It was a historic judgment as for the first time so many people have been convicted of mob violence".

Hours after the verdict today, the workers sought to bring the focus back on the tense industrial relations, underscoring the mass acquittal.

Reading out the 508-page judgment, Additional District and Sessions Judge RP Goyal said 13 of the accused, including the former union members, were found guilty of murder, attempt to murder, destruction of evidence and criminal conspiracy.

Another 117 factory workers were acquitted over the protests, in which a senior manager was beaten to death. The matter soon got out of hand and the workers allegedly set fire to one of the floors. Administration had imposed Section 144 in the district court premises and within 500 metres of the Maruti Suzuki plant in Manesar. The police had said Dev was an asthma patient and became unconscious after inhaling smoke and got trapped in the fire. "They have been implicated in the case and management witnesses have deposed against them because they stand for rights of workers". "The stand of Maruti is vindicated".

The clash was taken place in the backdrop of the workers' demand of having their union and three strikes in 2011 had derailed the production.

After the riots, almost 150 workers were arrested for doing criminal conspiracy and murder.
