Chaos ensued in Noida Sector 63 after a Chinese national at a factory of mobile company Oppo tore an Indian flag and threw it out of the shop late on Monday night.
Even Oppo India employees have joined the protest against the Chinese employee who is a production manager in the facility and three of them have officially complained against him.
Over 200 police personnel were deployed to bring the situation under control. A case has been filed by the police against the Chinese employee.
“A case of disrespecting the national flag has been filed on the basis of a complaint filed by the company employees. We have not arrested anyone in this connection and investigations are in progress. Action has to be taken after a thorough probe and we are in touch with company employees,” said Gautam Budh Nagar Senior police superintendent Dharmendra Singh.
Hundreds of people, including employees of Oppo and members of Vishva Hindu Parishad protested outside the office.
The sector remained inaccessible for four hours due to a large crowd gathering.
