Fire-affected Bangabazar businessmen: Enamur

Staff Correspondent: State Minister for Disaster Management and Relief Dr Md Enamur Rahman yesterday said after determining the damages of the devastating Bangabazar inferno, the affected businessmen will be rehabilitated.
“After the investigation and determining the damages, the affected businessmen will be rehabilitated. Now, on behalf of the ministry concerned, Tk 15,000 will be given to each injured person,” he told journalists.
The state minister was talking to the journalists after holding a meeting with Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) Mayor Barrister Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh on the Bangabazar inferno issue at DSCC’s Buriganga Hall.
“We have given instructions to the district administration from our ministry to pay Tk 15,000 to the injured immediately. A special team has been formed to treat the injured,” Enamur added.
He said: “Till now, we are describing this incident as an accident. It is not appropriate to give any specific opinion until the investigation report is received.”
DSCC Mayor Taposh said that Bangabazar Market was declared risky by the corporation in 2019 and when the corporation took the initiative to construct a new building, the ‘Market Samity’ filed a writ petition before the High Court seeking a stay order against the construction of the new building and the court issued the stay order.
