‘Rohingya camp fire pre-planned’

COX'S BAZAR: The investigative committee on Rohingya camp fire that gutted over 2000 houses on Sunday found evidence that the fire incident was pre-planned over establishing dominance, reports UNB.

Additional District Magistrate and head of the investigation committee Abu Sufian submitted the report to the District Commissioner on Sunday evening.
