Mumbai: About 100 Kingfisher employees, including engineers and pilots, today took out a candlelight march from domestic airport to Kingfisher house in Mumbai to protest against the death of a technician's wife, who allegedly committed suicide due to financial stress in Delhi.
"We have taken out this to condole the untimely death our colleague's wife, who committed suicide due to financial stress. We strongly condemn the agony airline management has given to us by not paying salaries for past seven months," said Captain Yatin Pandit, one of the organisers of the march.
"We pray for the peace of the departed soul and vow to continue our agitation," Pandit said, adding, "So far we have not received any communication from the management condoling the death of our colleague's wife."
Meanwhile, the KFA pilots and engineers are planning to take out a protest march in full uniform tomorrow from domestic airport to Kingfisher house to press for their demands.
The KFA employees have also raised funds to support the family of the deceased employee's wife.
