Tampaco factory rescue operation called off
Local administration has called off rescue operation at Tampaco Foils Limited factory in Tongi, Gazipur. Gazipur Deputy Commissioner SM Alam made the formal announcement at a press briefing on Monday morning. A total of 39 bodies have been recovered in the one-month operation after the tragic fire, said the official. Moreover, some 36 people were given treatment in different hospitals and most of them returned home. Eight bodies have been kept at Dhaka Medical College mortuary and those will be handed over to families after DNA tests, he added. “We are calling off the operation as rescuers and Army Dog Squad searched everywhere into the rubbles and found no more body.” Later, the DC thanked all forces, organisations and volunteers who took part in the rescue operation. A massive fire erupted at the Tampaco food and cigarette packaging factory after a huge explosion on September 10. The cause of the fire remains unknown. Gas supplier Titas Gas, in its report, claimed the gas leak did not trigger the fire. It was Bangladesh’s worst industrial disaster since the 2013 Rana Plaza collapse that claimed the lives of over 1,100 readymade garment workers.
