GHOST PHOBIA AT CEPZ
Production at textile factory suspended for two days
Nurul Alam . Chittagong
Ghost phobia prompted the authorities of a textile factory at Chittagong Export Processing Zone to suspend its operation for the last two days, causing a loss of around Tk 3 crore, officials said.
‘All the workers have already been asked to join their work and we hope that we will be able to resume the production today,’ a senior official said.
Against the backdrop of such a phobia, the factory management held a prayers session on the factory premises on Wednesday to dispel the fear about ghost.
The trouble hit Universal Jeans Ltd, a sister concern of Pacific Jeans Group at CEPZ, after two of its workers claimed that they were attacked by ghost inside the factory’s washroom on Tuesday.
The two workers Mohammad Faruk and Archana Dutta were admitted to CEPZ Hospital after they became unconscious on the day.
General Manager of CEPZ Authority Ataul Hoque told New Age that the ghost story was created by a vested quarter through spreading rumours among the workers.
‘It has been done to create a chaotic situation inside the garments and textiles factories at CEPZ. There is no ghost and ghost attack incident,’ he said.
The two workers became unconscious due to weakness as they got panicked after hearing the rumour about ghost, he said quoting the doctors.
As all the workers declined to join their work, the operation at some sections of the factory remained suspended on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Senior manager of Pacific Jeans Group Mahbubul Huq said as a vested quarter circulated the rumours, some workers felt weak and two of them suddenly became unconscious.
‘Due to this trouble, the factory incurred a loss of around Tk 3 crore as its operation was suspended for the last two days.’
He, however, informed that Universal Jeans Ltd having a workforce of 4,000 was set up six months back.
Damn I am dying of laughter right now. :lol:
