Three years since factory fire killed hundreds in Karachi

Three years since factory fire killed hundreds in Karachi
KARACHI: It has been three years since a fire at a garment factory devoured over 260 people, relatives and families of the victims are still looking for justice and financial assistance.

Whatever caused the fire at the factory in Baldia town, the tragedy left tales of pain, dejection and helplessness.

Nazia’s last telephonic conversation with her Husbanb Riaz, who was trapped in the burning factory, still gives her sleepless nights.

“Nazia take care of my children after I am gone,” Shahid had told her before being killed with hundreds others at Ali Enterprises.

Hoping against the hopes, she wanted Shahid to keep talking so that she could comfort her heart that father of her children was alive.

The government may have forgotten the incident and its victims, but tragedy still haunts Nazia and other families whose loved ones fell victim to the deadly blaze.
