10 injured as RMG workers ransack factory
At least 10 people, including a security guard, were injured yesterday when workers of a garment factory in Gazipur ransacked the factory due to a feud over entering the building with mobile phones.
A security guard of Southern Knitwear Factory in Kaliakoir upazila stopped a worker of the factory from entering the building with a mobile phone. Angry over not being able to enter their workplace with mobile phones, the workers ransacked the factory and vandalised a pick-up van parked in front of the factory premises.
Engineer MA Based, managing director of the factory, said this was a minor incident. “We will solve the issue with the workers ourselves,” he said.
To check any untoward situation the authorities closed the factory yesterday.
Additional police were deployed in the area.
