Security personnel stand guard outside Wistron Infocomm Manufacturing India Pvt Ltd, where a section of workers carried out a rampage a day before, on December 13 in Bangalore.

Just a week after violence blew up at  its Narasapura facility in Karnataka, contract manufacturer Wistron on Saturday announced it has let go of its vice-president responsible for operations in India, while iPhone maker Apple placed the Taiwanese firm on probation.
