A Dhaka court today set April 5 for submitting the probe report in the case filed over the devastating fire in the capital's Chawkbazar on February 20, 2019.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Ashek Imam set the new date as the investigation officer failed to submit the report today.
A total of 71 people were killed and many more were injured in the fire, which originated from a building named Wahed Mansion. A local named Asif filed the case with Chawkbazar Police Station for causing loss of lives and properties by the fire because of negligence.
According to the case documents, two owners of Wahed Mansion, Md Hasan and his brother Sohel alias Shahid rented out their house as warehouse for chemical and flammable materials for making extra profit, in spite of knowing about the risk of fire.
