Panchagarh boat capsize: Probe body gets 3 more days to submit report
The deadline for submitting the committee's report on the boat capsize in Panchagarh's Karatoa River has been extended by three days.
Dipankar Roy, additional deputy commissioner (revenue) of Panchagarh, who heads the probe committee, confirmed the development to our Thakurgaon correspondent.
"We are all engaged in field-level work including rescue, treatment of the injured, cremation of the dead. The investigation was supposed to be completed in three days. However, because we were all preoccupied with work on the ground, we requested three additional days from the deputy commissioner to ensure a thorough investigation," he said.
"The deputy commissioner has given us an additional three days to submit the report in accordance with our request," Dipankar Roy added.
