One more victim of Narayanganj mosque blast dies; death toll now 34

The death toll from mosque blast in a Narayanganj mosque has climbed to 34 after one more victim succumbed to his injuries in a Dhaka hospital.

Shahadat Hossain Sifat, 18, succumbed to his burn injuries at the Sheikh Hasina National Institute of Burn and Plastic Surgery on Tuesday, said Partho Shankar Paul, the institute’s resident physician.

Two others are battling for their lives in the hospital, he added.

More than 50 Muslim worshippers sustained burn injuries when blast took place at a mosque in Narayanganj’s Fatullah on September 4.

Only one survivor, Mamun Prodhan, returned home from the institute several days ago.
