Former president Dr AQM Badruddoza Chowdhury yesterday called for forming a judicial probe commission to ensure proper investigations into the recent deadly fire incidents.
In a statement, he also voiced deep concern over the fire incident at Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) Kitchen Market at Gulshan, just two days after a devastating fire in the city's Banani.
“Before the fire at Gulshan-1 kitchen market, many innocent people lost their lives in dangerous fire incident at Chawkbazar's Churihatta and [FR Tower of] Banani. I call for forming a judicial investigation commission to look into the incidents,” said Chowdhury, president of Bikalpa Dhara Bangladesh.
He urged the government to ensure due compensation for families of those killed and those who suffered injuries in the fire incidents.
He conveyed deep sympathy to the family members and relatives of the victims of the recent blazes.
