Mirpur burn victim dies


After the death of his child and wife, the man, who sustained burn injuries when a fire broke out at a building in city’s Mirpur area early Wednesday, died at the burn unit of Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) on Thursday.


The deceased Manik, 35, who was admitted to the hospital with 95 percent burn injuries, succumbed to his injuries around 6:30am, said Bacchu Mia, sub-inspector of DMCH police camp.


Earlier, seven-month old boy Tamim was burnt to death and his parents sustained injuries in the fire that broke out early Wednesday.


Later in the day, Manik’s wife Mina, 28, succumbed to her injuries at the hospital around 2:15 pm.


The fire, originated from a cigarette butt, broke out at the ground floor of a four-storey building around 11:45am and spread soon, said Rashed Shikdar, duty officer of Fire Service and Civil Defense central control room.


The fire was spread all over the room due to the leakage of gas line, he said.
