Chawkbazar Fire: Wahed Mansion owners placed on remand

A Dhaka court yesterday placed the two owners of Wahed Mansion -- from where the deadly Chawkbazar fire originated -- on a seven-day remand each, in a case filed over the deaths of 70 people.

Metropolitan Magistrate Rajesh Chowdhury passed the order after Md Muradul Islam, investigation officer of the case, produced the duo -- Md Hasan and Sohel alias Shahid, sons of Haji Abdul Wahed -- before the court seeking a remand order for 10 days.

The defence sought bail for the accused and cancellation of the remand order, saying that their clients were not present during the fire incident.

The duo was sent to jail on April 2 after their surrender before a Dhaka court seeking bail in the case.
