NEW DELHI (AP) — Reports say 31 factory workers have been convicted in a north India court for taking part in violence at a factory run by the country's largest automobile manufacturer Maruti Suzuki that led to the death of a manager.

New Delhi Television station reported that another 117 men were acquitted of charges of criminal conspiracy and murder Friday. A dispute between workers and management at the factory in Manesar in Haryana state ended in rioting in 2012.
