Shares of Maruti Suzuki fall 1.6 percent after the reports workers are planning a hunger strike and other peaceful protests to force the management to take back the 548 employees sacked after the deadly violence in July that hit production.

The workers are being organised by former union Maruti Suzuki Workers Union, Economic Times reports, citing a union official.

MSWU is no longer operational after instigating the July violence, according to the report.
Maruti spokesman confirms that protests are taking place at its Manesar plant, but says they do not involve current employees and will have no impact on production.
