Tazreen fire was sabotage: probe

This November 24 photo shows fire fighters try to douse a deadly fire that broke out in Tazreen Fashions.

A government probe into a fire in Tazreen Fashions Ltd which killed more than 100 workers last month has found the blaze was an act of sabotage.

“It was an act of sabotage,” Main Uddin Khandaker, head of the probe committee, told The Daily Star over telephone Monday evening.

Khandaker, however, did not say who might have carried out the sabotage and why.

The finding came about three weeks after the deadly fire at the export-oriented factory in the city’s suburb of Ashulia burnt 112 people, mostly workers, to death on November 24.
