One worker died and some 300 others fell sick after drinking contaminated water at Supreme Knitwear factory in Adamjee EPZ area here on Saturday.   The deceased, Dalia, 20, was a knitting operator at the factory.   Sources said Dalia fell sick after drinking water in the factory around 9am. She was rushed to Khanpur 300-Bed Hospital where doctors declared her dead.   Around 300 garment workers also fell sick as they drank water from the same supply in the factory.   The sick workers were hospitalised.   Masud Khan, acting police super of Narayanganj Industrial Police-4, said the workers fell sick due to panic after they had heard the news of Dalia’s death.   An official at the EPZ said they collected samples from the water tank of the factory building for laboratory tests.                                       -UNB
