On Saturday, disgruntled employees at an iPhone manufacturing plant in India ransacked the facility over unpaid wages.

At least 2,000 employees at the Narsapura plant of Wistron Corporation, a Taiwan-based company that manufactures devices for Apple, "went on a rampage destroying the company's furniture, assembly units and even attempted to set fire to vehicles," according to The Times of India

In the videos below, employees flipped vehicles at the plant, along with destroying everything in sight. 

Speaking to Indianexpress.com, Kolar Police Head Karthik Reddy said:

"The employees demanded the payment pending for a few months and met the Human Resources Department officials on Saturday." 

Wage problems had been festering at the plant for some time. Police said the incident on Saturday resulted in at least 80 arrests. 

It's still too early to tell if the riot has created any supply chain disruptions - considering Apple has moved at least a fifth of iPhone production from China to the country.
