This November 29, 2012 file photo shows the charred machines after a devastating fire that killed 112 workers at Tazreen Fashions in Ashulia, on the outskirts of the capital, Dhaka.

A Dhaka court today accepted an appeal filed by prosecution challenging the legality of granting bail to Tazreen Fashions Chairman Mahmuda Akhter in a case filed over the devastating fire that killed 112 workers.

The prosecution filed the appeal two days after another Dhaka court granted her conditional bail for one month.

Chief Judicial Magistrate Md Ismail Hossain on Monday granted bail to Mahmuda, also wife of Tazreen MD Delwar Hossain, saying that she had to appear before the court every Sunday throughout the bail period.

Two days after the order, District Public Prosecutor Khondaker Abdul Mannan today filed the petition with the court seeking cancellation of the bail.

Dhaka District and Sessions Judge Md Abdul Majid accepted the petition but did not fix any date of hearing.

The fire that broke out at Tazreen Fashions at Ashulia, an outskirt area of the capital, claimed 112 lives of the garment workers on November 24, 2012.

In December last year, police pressed murder charges against 13 people, including Delwar and Mahmuda.

They are also facing charges of negligence that led to so many casualties in the blaze.
