Baldia factory fire reinvestigation report seeked by Aug 1



A sessions court on Saturday directed police to submit a report in the fire-wrecked garment factory case till August 1.

The Owners of Baldia industrial unit, general manager and gatekeepers were booked initially in the tragic incident in which over 250 workers were burnt in September 2012, as per reports.

The provincial authorities ordered reinvestigation after a joint investigation team report filed in the Sindh High Court stated the factory had been set on fire over non-payment of extortion money.

When the case came up for hearing on Saturday, additional district and sessions judge (west) Naushaba Kazi expressed her displeasure over the delay in the submission of the re-investigation report.
