President shocked at loss of lives in N’ganj factory fire

President Abdul Hamid on Friday expressed deep shock and sorrow at the loss of lives and belongings in a factory fire at Rupganj in Narayanganj.

In a condolence message, the President prayed for the eternal peace of the departed souls and conveyed sympathy to the bereaved family members.

He wished for the early recovery of the injured in the blaze.

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.
