PM expresses grief at loss of lives in Rupganj fire

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Friday expressed profound shock at the loss of lives in a factory fire at Rupganj in Narayanganj.

The Prime Minister prayed for the salvation of the departed souls and conveyed deep sympathy to the bereaved families, said PM’s Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim.

A massive fire swept through a seven-storey building housing a juice factory of Hashem Food Ltd at Bhulta Karnagop in Rupganj.

So far, the death toll from the fire reached 52 that broke out at 5pm on Thursday.

But the death toll might go up as the search operation still continues on the fifth and sixth floors of the building.
