Chawkbazar fire: Husband didn’t leave pregnant wife behind
Relatives mourn the death

DHAKA:  A man did not leave his pregnant wife behind as the wife could not move herself because of her pregnancy from the third floor of a building in city’s Chawkbazar where an inferno claimed 70 lives.

As a result, the couple and their unborn child were burnt to death on the 3rd floor of Wahid Mansion, according the claim of relatives who are still waiting to identify bodies of their loved ones.

Rifat and Riya, who were friends, got married 2 years ago. Due to her pregnancy and other complications, Riya could not come out from the building, Al-Aksar Sajid, a friend of the deceased, told Banglanews

The friend had a conversation with family members of Rifat after the building had set ablaze. Rifat could not move Riya from the fire that is why he did not leave his wife behind, Al-Aksar Sajid also said.
