Noida: A two-day all-India industrial shutdown turned violent Wednesday as mobs of workers attacked factories that were open and set fire to vehicles of their owners as well as fire tenders.

At least one factory complex was also torched, officials and witnesses said.

A hosiery unit in Noida was ransacked, police sources said.

Hours later, strike supporters stoned factories and outlets in sectors 81, 82 and 84 of Greater Noida.

Glass panes in many factories were shattered even as the security guards tried to pacify the mobs and later fired in the air, a police officer told IANS.

Road traffic was hit at many places in Greater Noida and Noida because of the violence.
