Bengaluru: A day after a massive fire broke out at a chemical factory situated in Bapuji Nagar in Bengaluru, the city police on Wednesday arrested three people including the owners of the factory.

The arrested are Sajjanraj (66), the owner of Rekha Chemical Industries, his wife Kamala Sajjanraj (60), owner of Rekha Chemicals Corporation, and their son Anil Kumar (30), who managed the family business.

Reportedly, as many as 1,800 barrels of chemicals used for santisiers and paint thinners were illegally stored in the godown.

Speaking with this regard DCP (west) Sanjeev M. Patil said, “The couple has two factories in Bommasandra Industrial Area and the licence to run both. But they did not have the required permission or licence to store chemical barrels in the godown.”

He further added, “They had not taken permission from the BBMP, Fire and Emergency Services or from the pollution control board.”
