Boss kills employee for demanding salary
Several minibus drivers, Uzbek nationals, employed in a small private-hire company went on strike following a salary cut. In the evening they gathered in the garage waiting for their boss to arrive.
When he came, the irritated drivers started a squabble.
“You cut our salary and took away our passports!” they were heard shouting. “We can’t even leave you. We are like slaves.”
All of a sudden the businessman took out his pump-action gun and fired at the crowd – wounding 47-year-old Aktam Khuzhamuratov.
Without paying any attention to the man, the businessman then left the premises. The wounded man was taken to hospital where he died shortly afterwards, leaving a wife and two teenage sons in Uzbekistan.
The businessman has been arrested and an investigation is now underway.
