Islamabad: The National Labour Federation (NLF) here on Thursday took out a protest rally to demand arrest of culprits involved in burning to death over 250 workers in Baldia Town factory fire incident in Karachi.
NLF central president Shamsur Rehman Swati, Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Islamabad ameer Zubair Farooq Khan, NLF president for Rawalpindi and Islamabad Saqlain Bhatti and others addressed participants of the rally.
The protesters carried banners and placards inscribed with demands for arrest of murderers of 259 workers and announcement of compensation for heirs of victims. Shamsur Rehman Swati said that mass killing of poor workers by the agents of ‘Bhatta Mafia’ was black day for the working class and labourers who lost their 259 colleagues in tragic fire incident. He said the culprits involved in the incident should be arrested and taken to task.
Zubair Farooq Khan said the concerned authorities should immediately take action on findings of the report of Joint Investigation Team (JIT). “Despite the JIT report, so far no action has been taken against the culprits,” he said.
