In March 2018 Mollah fell from the eighth storey of the Ekta, a 300,000-tonne super-tanker that was being cut up at the Zuma Enterprise ship-breaking yard on Sitakunda beach. London law firm Leigh Day argues that the accident was foreseeable and that Maran (UK) Ltd, who sold the Ekta for demolition to a Dubai-based company, would have known it was going to Chittagong for demolition and should have anticipated the risk of injury to workers like Khalid demolishing it. Instead, Leigh Day contends, the international shipping industry, which customarily sells its scrap ships via middlemen, takes advantage of Bangladesh’s weak regulations, using a maze of box numbers, tax havens and intermediaries to distance itself from the dangerous scrapping process.
