Manesar: Representatives of around 100 villages, who gathered at Dhana village for a Mahapanchayat, on Monday, demanded a CBI inquiry into the violence at Maruti Suzuki's plant last week in which one senior company official was killed and 100 injured.

"We don't have faith in the special investigation team. We demand a CBI inquiry to probe the incident," said former Gurgaon Zila Parishad Chairman Rao Abhay Yadav, who presided the Mahapanchayat.
