Another explosion. Tragedy struck the Nitaiganj area of Narayanganj earlier today as an explosion occurred at a two-storey building, resulting in the death of one person and injuring nine others.
The deceased has been identified as Awlad, aged 40, while the seven people hurt in the incident suffered injuries due to the walls collapsing, and the other two sustained burn injuries. The cause of the fire is yet to be determined.
