Garment workers on Monday demanded the arrest of Tazreen Fashions Ltd owner Delwar Hossain in connection with the devastating fire at the factory that claimed over 100 lives in 2012.
The demand was made from a protest rally held at Jurain Graveyard marking the second anniversary of the tragedy. Garments Sramik Sangram Parishad organised the rally. Prior to the rally, tributes were paid to those fire victims buried at the graveyard.
Speakers at the rally demanded that the bail granted to Delwar Hossain be scrapped, he be arrested and exemplary punishment be meted out to him.
They also put forward some demands including ensuring safety measures at workplace, publishing the probe report of the Tazreen Fashions fire incident and taking punitive action against those found guilty over the incident through amending the Labour Act.
On July 24, a High Court bench comprising Justice Syed AB Mahmudul Huq and Justice M Nazrul Islam Talukder granted bail to Delwar in a case filed over the devastating fire at Tazreen Fashions Ltd. ?UNB
