According to police, the owner of the food factory and four of his sons were among the eight persons held in connection with the fire, which broke out Thursday and lasted for more than a day.

A secondary investigation has been begun into the facility's use of child labor. According to Jayedul Alam, the police chief for the Narayanganj district, where the plant is located, the entry was padlocked at the time of the incident, and the firm violated many fire and safety laws. “It was a premeditated murder,” the police chief said, according to AFP. The dead of 48 people were discovered on the third level of the Hashem Food and Beverage business in Rupganj, an industrial town outside of Dhaka.

Monnujan Sufian, the state minister for labor, stated that investigations into the use of child laborers at the facility had commenced. Sufian told AFP she had spoken to two 14-year-old survivors at a hospital. One woman reported her 11-year-old nephew had gone missing while working at the facility and was presumed dead. Bangladesh promised reforms following the Rana Plaza incident in 2013, in which a nine-story building collapsed, killing over 1,100 people. However, there have been a number of fires and other natural calamities since then. At least 70 people were killed in February 2019 after a fire raced through Dhaka flats where chemicals were illegally stored.
