Rana among 41 indicted for murder in Plaza collapse case

A Dhaka court on Monday framed charges against 41 accused including owner Sohel Rana in a case filed over the Rana Plaza tragedy in 2013 that killed at least 1,136 people. 

 

Judge SM Kuddus Zaman of the Dhaka District and Sessions Judges Court passed the order in the case.

 

If convicted, the accused could face the death penalty, law experts said.

 

The collapse of Rana Plaza led to an international outcry, and to a commitment by Western retailers to widespread inspections of Bangladesh’s thousands of apparel factories.
