Punishment for Rana, factory owners sought
Bangladesh Garments Sramik Oikya Parishad yesterday demanded punishment for Rana Plaza owner Sohel Rana and the owners of the factories the building housed.
The parishad also demanded adequate compensations for the victims' family members and proper treatment for the workers injured in the building collapse.
Sirajul Islam Roni, coordinator of the parishad, raised the demands at a press conference at Dhaka Reporters' Unity in the capital.
The government should bring the owners, who were violating the rules over workers' safety, under stern legal actions, said Roni.
The nine-storey Rana Plaza building collapsed in Savar on the outskirts of the capital on April 24, killing hundreds of garment workers and injuring thousands.
