Political party behind baldia factory fire: Rangers
KARACHI (Web Desk) - Baldia factory was deliberately put on fire by the members of a political party that killed 250 people in 2012, Rangers said in a report submitted to Sindh High Court (SHC).

A two-member SHC bench, headed by Chief Justice Maqbool Baqir, took up the case today. The Rangers report submitted to the bench stated that a member of the accused political party admitted to setting the factory on fire along with his accomplices. The suspect was arrested by Rangers as part of the investigation into the inferno.

Rangers have asked SHC to keep the findings of the report secret due to the involvement of politicians in the attack.

During the hearing, the court ordered the concerned authorities to distribute cheques among the victims who haven’t been given any financial support. It also asked the authorities to submit a report in one week time.
