HC gives Tampaco factory owner, five others a week to surrender for murder case over deadly fire
The High Court has ordered the chairman and five others from Tampaco Foils Ltd to surrender in court within a week for a murder case over the death of 34 workers in a factory fire.
The bench of justices AKM Asaduzzaman and Zafar Ahmed gave the order after hearing anticipatory bail pleas for chairman Syed Mokbul Hussain and the others on Wednesday.
The court issued eight-week bail for Mokbul’s wife and daughter.
The eight accused had filed separate bail pleas for two cases over the deadly fire after surrendering in High Court on Monday, said M Ataul Gani, a lawyer who represented them in the hearing; according to bdnews24.com.
