Narayanganj gas leak explosion victim dies

A woman, who sustained 90 percent burns in Friday’s gas leak explosion in Narayanganj, succumbed to her injuries on Monday.

Aleya Begum, 42, breathed her last around 1am in the ICU of Sheikh Hasina National Institute of Burn and Plastic Surgery.

Her son in-law Biplob said five of their family members, including his three-month-old son Mahir, are still being treated at the hospital for burn injuries.

Others injured in the incident have been released from the hospital, he said.

On April 23, at least 11 people were injured in a gas leak explosion at a building in Narayanganj's Fatullah.

Dhaka Medical College Hospital police outpost Inspector Bacchu Mia said Aleya had suffered 90 percent burns.

Narayanganj district administration has assured of providing financial support for the treatment of the injured and formed a seven-member committee on Friday to look into the incident.
