Five workers remain missing a year after Tampaco blast
Nurunnahar does not know what to tell her nine-year-old boy Nahid when he asks about his missing father. One year has passed since her husband Johirul Islam, a worker at Tampaco Foils Ltd, went missing. “It has been a year. If only we could get a small piece of his bone ... I could at least give him a burial, and show the grave to his son,” she said. Johirul is among five workers who still remain missing after a boiler blast at Tampaco's factory in Tongi industrial area on September 10 last year. The devastating blast in Gazipur killed at least 41 workers. Several sets of charred and partially burnt down remains were recovered from the debris of the fire ravaged building during the rescue operation.

Tests on the DNA samples extracted from some of those remains have not yet matched with the DNA samples of the relatives of the five missing workers. Ahmed Ferdous, chief DNA analyst at the Forensic DNA Laboratory of Criminal Investigation Department, told the Dhaka Tribune that they had asked for more samples of the remains for further examination.
