MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Abdul Rehman was seized in a police raid on the hotel he was staying at in Bangkok, the Bangkok Post newspaper said on Saturday. He reportedly arrived in the country two weeks ago.
The man is said to be involved in a Pakistani criminal ring. He allegedly set fire to the factory after its owner refused to pay him almost $200,000.
Karachi fire chief Ehtesham Salim said bodies of factory workers were found in the basement of the facility, which produce underwear and plastic utensils. He said it was the deadliest blaze in decades.
