A district and sessions court dismissed on Saturday the bail applications of two security guards of the Baldia garment factory.
The fifth additional district and sessions judge, West, Abdullah Channah, dismissed the bail-after-arrest applications of Ali Muhammad and Fazal Mehmood, and reserved the verdict.
The counsel for the guards, Muhammad Tamim Khan, said that the applications were denied around noon, but he could not get hold of the grounds on which the judge took that decision.
Khan will receive copies of the judgment on Monday, after which he said, he will file an application for bail in the Sindh High Court.
The police had arrested the guards on charges of their involvement in the factory fire that took over 250 lives in September this year.
