Bangladesh’s Ministry of Industries suspends operation at Motaleb Steel, a ship-breaking yard in Sitakunda, Chattogram, citing the failure of the yard to ensure the safety of its workers, according to local media.

 

Operations at the yard were halted after an accident that caused the death of a worker on May 27. The worker died from falling from a scrap ship beaching at the shores of the Kumira area in Sitakunda.

 

An investigation committee is probing the accident and the government has ensured further action based on the report.
