Blaze sweeps through Sharif brothers’ sugar mill
According to details, rescue workers have reached the site to put off the fire which apparently seems to be third degree fire as it has spread onto a large part of the building, however no casualty has taken place.
The incident happened at a time when, during a press conference, Pakistan Awami Tehreek Chairman Tahir-ul-Qadri was revealing sensitive information about sugar mills of Sharif brothers.
Qadri said hundreds of Indian citizens were present in the sugar mills. He also appealed from law enforcement agencies to take action against the ruling family and its close allies lest fire clears all the evidences.
ARY News representative Ameer Umar Chaman said rescue teams had controlled 60 percent of fire, while the mill administration had barred from taking pictures of place of the incident. Entrance and exit ways of the mill have also been closed for workers.
Tahir-ul-Qadri has released the names of fifty Indian citizens which he said are working in the mills and other business ventures of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
