During this period he engaged in different jobs with different employers. Unfortunately he was expired in a fire explosion accident with last employer while performing duties, just before his marriage, which was scheduled to be held in July, 2006, when his loving family was waiting in Pakistan. 2. It was known from different sources that last employer of my son had established a factory in which oil/petrol nature things were shifted from bulk supply to small quantity. Due to dangerous chemicals with little protection equipments and without safety training this incident was happened. As a result of this incident on 05-05-2006 four (4) workers were seriously injured and one of them was my son, who was seriously burnt more than 85% and admitted in hospital along with other victims in Intensive Care Unit (hospital documents attached) 3.
