Tazreen chairperson sent to jail

Court Correspondent

A Dhaka court again sent Mahmuda Akter, chairperson of Tazreen Fashions Ltd, to jail yesterday rejecting her bail petition in a homicide case.
Senior Judicial Magistrate Kazi Shahidul Islam passed the order after Mahmuda turned herself in, seeking bail from the court through her lawyer.
Earlier, Mahmuda received bail on February 10 in a case filed over a deadly fire at the Tazreen Fashions factory on November 24, 2012, that killed at least 112 workers in Ashulia.
On March 20, the District and Sessions Judge's Court cancelled Mahmuda's bail and asked her to surrender in 15 days before the Chief Judicial Magistrate's Court in Dhaka that granted her bail.
Mahmuda's husband Delwar Hossain, who is the managing director of Tazreen Fashions Ltd, is behind bars.
Mahmuda and Delwar have been facing charges for their negligence to ensure adequate safety measures in the factory.
