Almost 52 factory workers have died and many other peoples were wounded after a fire broke out in a Shezan juice factory in Bangladesh on July 8 evening. Even following 21 hours, the factory fire is yet to be completely drenched as fire department units from around the nation were battling at the factory building today. As indicated by fire department authorities, the fire broke out at around 5 pm on the 8th of July.
It is thought that the fire in the Juice factory started from the beginning of the six-story of factory building, and the fire spread because of the presence of synthetic and also chemical materials in the factory. Police officials stated that local people have assembled near the factory building for their friends & family who are still missing.
The country has a shocking history of fire destruction, incorporating industrial facilities bursting into flames with the labourers bolted inside. Proceeding with corruption and careless implementation have brought about numerous death cases in few years, and foreign companies, which utilize a huge number of low-paid workers in Bangladesh, have gone under hefty strain to further develop industrial facility conditions after fires and different disasters killed many citizens.
The manufacturing building that burst into flames on July 8 was a subsidiary company of Sajeeb Corporation, a Bangladeshi organization that produces juice under Shezan International Group said by Kazi Rahman, the export manager. As indicated by a spokesperson the factory building was locked from the inside when the fire broke out. It is as yet unknown the number of workers was caught inside the factory, yet the workers who came out alive told their feelings of panic that other workers probably won’t have figured out how to get away from the building.
Numerous survivors were wounded and some died outside of lethal wounds after jumping from the upper factory floors trying to get away from the flames. Distressed family members of the workers arranged protests near the factory and blocked the Dhaka-Sylhet road for quite a long time, conflicting with the police.
In 2012, a fire dashed through a garment factory building in the suburbs of Dhaka killing somewhere around 112 workers locked in the garment building. Another fire in Old Dhaka in a house illegally keeping synthetic or chemical substances killed something like 123 people in 2010.
