Relatives of the Rana Plaza collapse victims—plus workers and activists of different worker foundations—have paid their tributes to the victims by placing floral wreaths on a temporary altar.

The altar was erected at the Savar Bazar Bus Stand area, on the the sixth anniversary of the Rana Plaza collapse, on Wednesday.

Security has been beefed-up in front of the Rana Plaza site from Wednesday morning. No one has been allowed to stay in front of the temporary altar for long. 

Six years ago, on April 24, 2013, around 1,138 people lost their lives in the tragic incident, but justice is yet to be served.

Two cases—one under the penal code filed on charges of killing over 1,000 people, and another for violating building codes—were filed over the incident. The trials both cases are yet to begin.
