Factory sealed in Karachi as four die of inhaling toxic fumes




Thursday evening police officers sealed a chemical plant in the Bin Qasim area in Karachi and said SSA, Rai Anwar, after four workers died of inhaling toxic gases in the underground tanks of industrial facilities.

The body was subjected to post-test at the Jinna Graduate Medical Center (JPMC). On the other hand, he said other workers were rescued from the tank.

Rao Anwar said efforts are under way to detain plant owners in Gulshan-i-Iqbal. Some workers at the factory were arrested for interrogation, adding that the factory's underground chemical tanks are not equipped with safety devices to prevent life-saving.

The victims were not provided with protective equipment despite the fact that the provision of such equipment was mandatory under the rules.


The latest incident reminiscent of last year's accident at the Korangi plant, which took five lives, indicates that the violation of safety rules is continuing.

Bin Qasim Police SHO Dhani Bux said workers were apparently dead because they inhaled Dhawn's chemicals in the tank of the Scada chemical plant near Ghaghar Phatak.

The officer went into the tank to fix the fan when the worker slipped and dropped the tank into the tank, while the other three workers died to save their colleagues. Another worker was rescued and hospitalized, he said.

During the rehabilitation of Ali Shah, the deceased was identified as Zahoor Ahmed, Tanveer Ahmed, Faizan and Faisal.

Later, Sindh Chief Murad Ali Shah sought a detailed report on the issue in Secretary Labor Department.
