A Dhaka court today placed owner of Barishal Hotel and Restaurant Md Fakhar Uddin on one day’s remand in a case filed over the death of his six staff in a fire in old Dhaka's Chawkbazar area on Aug 16.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Mohammad Jasim passed the order as police produced Fakhar before the court and pleaded to place him on seven-day remand.

The fire, believed to be originated from a plastic product factory situated in the building, quickly engulfed the whole infrastructure, killing the six-hotel staff on the ground floor of the building.

Earlier on the day, police detained him from Keraniganj's Subhadya area.
