Two men have been sentenced to death over a garment factory fire in Pakistan in 2012, DW reported.
The blaze in 2012 had killed over 260 workers, who could not escape because the doors were locked.
The fire at the Ali Enterprises building in southern Karachi was a case of arson and not an accident, the Anti-Terrorism Court in Karachi ruled on Tuesday. The presiding judge sentenced two men to death for their involvement.
The men, who were previously affiliated with a political party currently part of the ruling coalition, were found guilty of setting the building on fire because of a non-payment of extortion money by the owners of the factory.
