Chinese telecom player Oppo India has announced that it will take appropriate action against the Chinese employee who reportedly tore the Indian national flag and dumped it in a dustbin. “We deeply regret this unfortunate incident and are extending all our co-operation to the concerned authorities and will take appropriate action,” said the company in a release.
The incident attracted huge protests at the Noida Sector 63 facility. 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.
In its defence the company said, “We at OPPO India are paying serious attention to this issue. OPPO as a brand has deep respect for India and is strongly rooted as well as localized in the country and 99% of our employees are Indians. We will update if there are any further developments.”
