A clothes factory caught fire in Baldia in 2012, which claimed the lives of as many as 250 workers. A Joint Investigation Team (JIT) provided its findings in a report on February 7 last year, in which they said a political party was involved in burning down the factory. It was claimed that owners of the factory had refused to pay extortion money, which had led to assailants committing the nefarious act.
