Hundreds of tea plantation workers in India allegedly set their boss's home on fire, burning him and his wife to death, the BBC reports.
The workers surrounded the bungalow in Kunapathar in Assam state on Wednesday night after a two-week-long dispute, lit it aflame and torched the manager's two vehicles, the report says.
Officials later found the burnt remains of Mridul Kumar Bhattacharyya and his wife, Rita, in the rubble.
Police have detained three of the roughly 700 workers who had gathered outside Bhattacharyya's home.
Bhattacharyya had reportedly been trying to force workers to leave their accommodations.
The fatal fire marked the second time he faced the wrath of angry tea workers. Two years ago, workers set fire to a tea factory at another plantation he owned.
More than half of India's tea output comes from 800 estates in Assam.
