KARACHI: 02, NOVEMBER, 2021: Sessions court in Karachi on Tuesday once again postponed the judgement on bail pleas of six suspects in the Korangi factory fire case.
According to sources, the verdict on bail applications of six suspects in the Korangi factory fire reference will be announced on November 5.
This is the fourth time the verdict has been deferred by the court.
Factory owner Hassan Meetha, its manager Syed Imran Ali Zaidi and others moved the bail applications.
On Oct 12, the sessions court had granted them interim pre-arrest bail against a surety bond of Rs500,000 each.
In August, at least 16 labourers had burnt alive as fire broke out in a chemical factory located in Korangi's Mehran Town, Karachi.
Fire brigade officials declared the blaze to be a third-degree fire.
A large number of labourers were present in the factory when the fire erupted at around 10 am. Officials added that the grills on the windows of the factory also hindered the fire-fighting and rescue operation. (04)
