A fire broke out at BM Container Depot in Chattogram on June 4.
Investigators said the container depot had stored at least 27 containers full of Hydrogen Peroxide which led to deadly blasts costing 50 lives, including 10 firefighters and more than 250 injured.
Eight officials of the fire-ravaged BM Container Depot were sued by police for negligence but left out the owners of the depot.
